About the film

For more than 50 years, broadcast journalist Mike Wallace went head-to-head with the 20th Century’s most influential figures and became massively influential, and widely feared, in his own right. Avi Belkin examines Wallace’s career and life exclusively using archival footage showing him on either side of the interview microphone, charting his rise from product pitchman and a host of frivolous entertainment shows to trusted news giant with CBS’s long-running “60 Minutes.” A timely tribute to a bygone era of TV news reporting, “Mike Wallace Is Here” interrogates the interrogator while unpacking how broadcast journalism evolved to today’s precarious tipping point. Michigan premiere.
