Even with the recent outpouring of support for earthquake victims in Haiti, Americans' attention span for global crises is usually very short. Is there a way to keep American audiences from tuning out important global issues of violence, poverty and catastrophe far beyond their backyards? NOW talks with filmmaker Eric Metzgar about Reporter , his documentary about the international reporting trips of The New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. In the film, Metzgar provides fascinating insight into how Kristof breaks through and gets us to think deeply about people and issues half a world away.
