Join us for a screening and Q&A with the directors of
Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists
an HBO documentary directed and produced
by Jonathan Alter, John Block and Steve McCarthy
Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists explores the famed writers' intersecting lives and careers while celebrating New York’s grit and charm during the last great era of print journalism.
Starting in the 1960s, Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill were household names, writing prolifically for the New York Herald Tribune, Daily News, Newsday, and the New York Post, among other papers. These friendly competitors helped to pioneer a style of “New Journalism” that brought elements of literary storytelling to the news, as well as a commitment to viewing accounts of economic and racial injustice through the prism of the common man and woman.
Filled with the humor and gusto that they both personified, the documentary is a poignant look at two giants who epitomized New York during its last great period of print journalism, whose influence still reverberates today.
