Description

New York Times journalist Andrew Goldman sets out to make a short film about Paul Henry, an outrageously un-PC New Zealand talk show host. In the midst of production, he is fired from his job, and his life falls apart. The Desk is a document of this unraveling, as well as a scorching indictment of the current outrage culture,

The Desk features a fresh, blasphemous take on the history of the nation’s paper of record. A film that New York Times lovers and haters alike will find electrifying, eye-opening and even a little bit infuriating.
