CITIZEN HEARST Trailer
Description: Citizen Hearst, directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks and narrated by Academy Award nominee William H. Macy, traces the 125-year history of the Hearst media empire, from William Randolph Hearst’s pioneering and controversial days of headline-grabbing newspapers and yellow journalism, to the global impact of the company’s many successful newspaper, magazine, television and digital brands that have shaped our culture. Citizen Hearst is the first in-depth look at how the company has navigated the changing times over the span of two centuries. The iconic nature of W.R. Hearst has long enthralled the public and was famously dramatized in the 1941 film Citizen Kane, starring Orson Welles. Crafted from historical footage and in-depth interviews with a variety of influential figures including Oprah Winfrey, Dan Rather, Mark Burnett, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Bob Iger, Leonard Maltin, Dr. Oz and Heidi Klum, among others this documentary provides a rare glimpse behind the glass walls of the Hearst Tower.
