We recently added “Deadline In Disaster” to the DBRL collection. We showed the film during last month’s Center Aisle Cinema, and it also played at the Missouri Theatre last month as well. The film was created by Beth Pike and Stephen Hudnell, who have also worked on the documentaries “Neither Here Nor There” and “Trustees for the Public.” Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
Joplin, Missouri changed forever on May 22, 2011. An EF-5 tornado ripped apart the Southwest Missouri town…. The Joplin Globe turned its reporting coverage to the horror of the day that would define its community as one of stregth and resolve in the weeks that followed. …Reporters examine their role as community watchdog and residents see their newspaper as a vital source for local news and moving forward.
