The Documentary, Rather premiered at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. The red carpet occurred at the SVA Theater. “Directed by Frank Marshall, the film weaves the past, present, and future of journalism as it delves into the hidden history of the man behind the news, revisiting Dan Rather’s 60+ years as a journalist with full unrestricted access. Rather offers an unfiltered look at both Dan’s esteemed career, as well as his present renaissance as one of the last beacons of quality reporting.”
