Film: 6:30 p.m. • Discussion follows

The Nation—the self-described “flagship of the left”—is the country’s oldest continuously published weekly magazine, jabbing at political sensitivities since its founding by Republican abolitionists at the time of the Civil War and particularly since finding a more progressive voice in the 1930s.

The new documentary Hot Type marks the publication’s 150th anniversary, spotlighting current and past writers and editors in chronicling daily life working on the magazine. Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple, the film also follows participants in The Nation’s much-sought-after internship program.
