Cinematique Presents: “Mike Wallace is Here”

Aug 7, 2019

Mike Wallace is Here runs from Monday, September 30 thru Wednesday, October 2. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.

For over half a century, 60 Minutes' fearsome newsman Mike Wallace went head-to-head with the world's most influential figures. Relying exclusively on archival footage, the film interrogates the interrogator, tracking Mike's storied career and troubled personal life while unpacking how broadcast journalism evolved to today's precarious tipping point.

 

“Belkin's portrait evokes the spirit of a typical Wallace interview: hard-hitting and unflinching in pursuit of the truth.” 

Leah Pickett 

Chicago Reader

“A masterful, cinematic biography that unpacks a man’s life through his work, showing us an uncompromising and difficult man who apparently wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
