A Truckload of Ink (The NOLA Project)
(September 5-22: Thursday-Saturday, 7:30 and Sunday 2:30 in the PAC) – Silver
Urban corruption, political agendas, school voucher schemes, and gala openings…Just another day for New Orleans’ only newspaper. But a fearful decision about the future of the paper will change everything. It will throw the lives of its reporters and editors into an unfamiliar world where loyalty, friendship, and careers are all in doubt. Based on true events, Jim Fitzmorris’ “A Truckload of Ink” is a hard hitting look at an industry and community in the midst of irrevocable change.
