Description:

Herblock – The Black & The White is a ground-breaking new documentary that has attracted rave reviews since its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Herblock follows the life and career of famed Washington Post cartoonist Herbert Block- known for his legendary attacks on political and corporate corruption, working to bring injustice to light. Block brought the news and the controversies of the day to life like no other journalist of his time – and influenced the nation with his pen in the process. The documentary provides insight from a man who many would consider the modern day equivalent of Herblock - Jon Stewart - as well as Tom Brokaw, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Ted Koppel, Ben BradleeGwen Ifill and many more. Herb Block changed the way political topics were viewed and communicated.  For his work, he received the Congressional Medal given by President Clinton and 3 Pulitzer Prizes. (95 minutes)
