Directed by Rebecca Landsberry-Baker and Joe Peeler, documentary, English, United States, 98 minutes, 2023

When the Muscogee Nation government abruptly repeals its landmark Free Press Act to muzzle the tribe’s hard-hitting news outlet, defiant and foul-mouthed journalist Angel Ellis charges headfirst into a historic (and surprisingly funny) battle to restore her tribe’s press freedoms. An enthralling, edge-of-your-seat nail biter that unfurls with the energy and suspense of a political thriller, Bad Press is a timely and unprecedented documentary about a lone journalist fighting a corrupt system for her fellow citizens. Discussion with director Joe Peeler and journalist/protagonist Angel Ellis to follow. GD, BIPOC, SJ [CC]
