SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS

TFF 2016 Directed by Ricky Gervais
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS [TFF 2016]
American politics and media are aptly satirized in this feature by firebrand comedian Ricky Gervais. A pretentious radio journalist and his ineffectual technician botch an assignment in South America, and decide to fabricate an on-the-scene story while hiding out in a New York City apartment. This scheme spirals out of their control when their escalating story becomes a national headline.



After the movie on Friday, April 22: Writer, Director Ricky Gervais in conversation with cast Eric Bana, Kevin Pollack, America Ferrera, and Raul Castello, and producers Chris Coen and Aaron Gilbert. Moderated by New York Magazine's Stacey Wilson Hunt.
