Terrific documentary that charts not only the working process of one of the world’s largest newspapers but observes the medium in decline. With the world getting more and more of its information online, print newspapers are increasingly looking like dinosaurs and having to justify their existence. This wonderful film shows the tragedy of budget cuts and decline in quality that have been affected by these changes, plus glimpses at the lives of a handful of journalists who work the paper and still believe that it is a cause worth fighting for.
