In the age of instant gratification and the 24-hour News cycle, journalistic integrity is more important than ever.  People can now get their information from countless sources so in an effort to attract readership, media outlets have resorted to sensationalized headlines and highlight reels.  What writers and reporters are now struggling with is how to present thoughtful, thorough, and truthful pieces when they’re constantly under pressure to find the next big scoop.  Austin Andrews and Andrew Holmes aim to stir up the conversation on this topic with their film Lord Jones Is Dead, an adaptation of Matthew Clayfield’s play and set against the backdrop of the competitive newspaper business in Johannesburg, South Africa.
