The Tropic is proud to partner with the Key West Film Festival! We’ll be your hosts for Festival screenings November 20-24. Until then, we will be offering a series of “Festival Pop-Ups”—screenings in the spirit of both the Tropic and the KWFF. Watch for more this summer and fall!
For over half a century, 60 Minutes’ fearsome newsman Mike Wallace went head-to-head with the world’s most influential figures. The new documentary “Mike Wallace is Here” offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, and at the aggressive reporting style and showmanship that redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters.
Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the 60 Minutes vault, the film interrogates the interrogator, tracking Mike’s storied career and troubled personal life while unpacking how broadcast journalism evolved to today’s precarious tipping point.
