RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.
Monday, we're talking about what happens when the right to privacy comes up against a free press. Director Brian Knappenberger's film uses as a case study the trial over Hulk Hogan's sex tape. With the funding of an internet billionaire, Hogan sued and ruined the online tabloid Gawker. It’s a tawdry story, but the film explores the ways big money can silence the media. It’s called Nobody Speak. (Rebroadcast)
Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It's now available for streaming on Netflix.
