America’s Newspapers is proud to sponsor the premiere of "Storm Lake" at the renowned AFI DOCs 2021 Film Festival.
"Storm Lake," from directors Beth Levison and Jerry Risius, follows the Cullens, Iowa's most impressive journalism family. For more than 30 years, Art Cullen, brother John, son Tom, wife Delores and sister-in-law Mary — plus Art's dog, Peach the newshound — have published The Storm Lake Times, a small-town, twice-weekly newspaper that covers critically important local issues and serves as the glue that holds the community together. But, against the backdrop of a collapsing journalism ecosystem and a crushing pandemic, how can the paper avoid the fate of so many other newspapers?
The 19th annual AFI DOCS film festival, being held June 22-27, will include world premieres and works by master and emerging filmmakers alike.
"Storm Lake" is available for virtual viewing beginning June 24 at Noon EDT with 48 hours to start watching after purchase. Click here for details
