Filmmaker Ted Bogosian will premiere his new film “The Press Secretary” during the DoubleTake Documentary Film Festival in Durham, NC. The Festival will run from [ May 3rd through the 6th, 2001 ] at the historic Carolina Theater. The World Premiere will be shown on the opening night, [ Thursday, May 3rd, ] at 7 PM, in Fletcher Hall.
Bogosian’s new film examines “the consequences of endless real-time media demands between the White House — the nation’s most important news source — and the journalists who cover it.”
“White House access for documentaries is historically prized and very exclusive,” said Bogosian. “In April of 2000 after waiting for over two years, I was given the green light for my project by President Bill Clinton; White House Chief of Staff, John Podesta; Press Secretary, Joe Lockhart; and National Security Advisor, Sandy Berger. This was basically the first ‘West Wing’ access granted to a filmmaker since the Kennedy administration.”
