from New Hope Film Festival for
Dan Rather: Courage Under Fire
Laurie Nadel was the Senior Producer

Courage Under Fire, a documentary film produced by Laurie Nadel for MindBodyNetwork, was a finalist in the 2016 Manhattan Film Festival.  A screening took place on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at 5 pm.  A trailer for this inspiring film is live on Youtube.

The film is a short documentary that explores controversial issues about news values, ethics, and conflicts of interest between the media and big business.  In this no-holds-barred interview with legendary newsman Dan Rather, the journalist talks about the corporatization of news and why he was fired after reporting on George W. Bush's going AWOL from the Air National Guard during the VIetnam War.  The film includes relevant archive footage of Rather's extraordinary work.
