The Post, followed by conversation with Ted Gup
To coincide with The Post, a thriller about The Washington Post’s publication of the Pentagon Papers about the war in Vietnam, the Centre for Investigative Journalism, in collaboration with Curzon Goldsmiths cinema, presents a showing of the film and a critical discussion of its themes with veteran national security journalist and Washington Post reporter Ted Gup.
Ted was one of the first members of Bob Woodward's investigative team (who broke the Watergate Story) and was a senior investigative reporter at the paper for years. He continues to contribute to the paper. Ted's books have been about the CIA, the impact of secrecy on democratic society, and the Great Depression. He has been a Pulitzer finalist, a Guggenheim Fellow, twice a fellow of Harvard University, and a Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University.
Chaired by CIJ Director James Harkin.
Film begins 6.00PM.
