Following Billy Wilder's Ace in the Hole, film critic Devin D. O'Leary moderates a discussion on the movie’s themes and on the importance of journalism in today’s society.
Fake News! Journalism Goes to Hollywood film and discussion series continues June 24 at the KiMo Theatre with "Ace in the Hole.”
"Ace in the Hole" is director Billy Wilder's cynical 1951 film starring Kirk Douglas as an unscrupulous reporter stranded in New Mexico who is willing to go to any length to get back to "the big time."
Following the film, Weekly Alibi film critic Devin D. O'Leary will moderate a discussion on the movie’s themes and on the importance of journalism in today’s society. Panelists include Gene Grant, veteran journalist and KNME’s New Mexico in Focus host, and Larry J. Calloway, veteran print journalist for the Associated Press and Albuquerque Journal. The panel discussion will be followed by questions from the audience.
The series, which will run monthly through November, is free and open to the public and invites community conversations about the importance of journalism in our democratic society and its many challenges today – as seen through the lens of Hollywood and popular culture.
