Sundance 2017: Nobody Speak

Jan 24, 2017

Tuesday, we continue our coverage of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival with an examination of the perils and duties of the free press. Director Brian Knappenbergerā€™s documentary film Nobody Speak explores the court battle between online tabloid Gawker and pro wrestler Hulk Hogan as case study, among others, of how big money can use litigation to check the freedom of the press. It also asks what a thin-skinned billionaire in the executive branch could do to media outlets that anger him.

Brian Knappenberger directed, edited, and produced the documentary filmĀ Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press, which is showing in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It's premier screening is today, January 24, at 3:00 p.m. at the Library Center Theatre in Park City. There are several more screenings throughout the festival. DETAILS
