A FRAGILE TRUST, co-presented by The Berkeley FILM Foundation and featuring a post-film Q&A with director Samantha Grant (Doc Night)
"A Fragile Trust" tells the shocking story of Jayson Blair, the most infamous serial plagiarist of our time, and how he unleashed the massive scandal that rocked The New York Times and the entire world of journalism. The documentary follows Blair as he slowly unravels in the face of mounting pressures and distractions. Starting with his 'reporting' of the plagiarized article that ultimately lead to his undoing, we trace the rise and fall of this fascinating young reporter as he clings to his career at The Times even as he is losing his mind.
This showing of "A Fragile Trust" features a post-film Q&A with director Samantha Grant.
This film is a co-presentation of The New Parkway and The Berkeley FILM Foundation.
