Hear from filmmaker Rick Goldsmith as he speaks on his documentary, STRIPPED FOR PARTS, AMERICAN JOURNALISM ON THE BRINK, which opens on December 1 and runs through December 7 at the Mary Riepma Ross Film Theatre. This feature film exposes a Wall Street hedge fund, Alden Global Capital and their activity of buying up chains of newspapers nationwide and the effect of these actions on journalism.

Goldsmith is a two-time Academy Award nominee. He co-produced and co-directed (with Judith Ehrlich) The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers (2009), an Academy-Award nominee for Best Feature Documentary, an Emmy nominee, and winner of a George Foster Peabody award (for its POV nationwide broadcast on PBS).

RICK GOLDSMITH’S mission is to tell stories that encourage social engagement and active participation in community life and the democratic process, and to stimulate young minds to question the world around them.

Born and raised in the suburbs of New York City, Goldsmith came west in 1975 and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area ever since. Trained in architecture, music and community activism, he started working in films in 1979 and made his living for years as an editor. Goldsmith is a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS); and Writers Guild of America, West.
