A feature documentary about the work of Nicholas Kristof, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the New York Times, Reporter reveals how and why reporting is vital to democracy, world awareness, and our capacity to be a force for good. It chronicles Kristof’s 2007 travels to the Democratic Republic of Congo, where 5.4 million people have been killed over the last decade. By highlighting individuals whose stories reflect the country’s crisis, Kristof brings the situation in Congo to the world’s attention.
