Description Institutional/Public Performance Rights
Blogger Josh Wolf sparked a national debate and gained international prominence when, at the risk of imprisonment, he refused to surrender his video of a San Francisco demonstration to federal authorities.  He consequently spent over seven months in a federal penitentiary - the longest in U.S. history for a journalist protecting his source material.

While praised by many members of both the established and 'new' media for his courage in upholding the principles of a free press, Wolf's activism and blogger status led others to question his standing as a true journalist.

After his release and in the wake of his new celebrity, Wolf demonstrated his commitment to activism by running for mayor of San Francisco on the platform of “creating true participatory democracy.”

This fascinating documentary profiles Wolf, examines the constitutional and journalistic issues surrounding the controversial U.S. vs. Wolf case, and explores the case's impact on the journalistic community and beyond.
