New Errol Morris Film “Tabloid”

MMoCA to Premiere New Errol Morris Film
“Tabloid” Will Be Presented by the Director

MADISON, WI–A new feature-length documentary by Errol Morris will be presented by the director at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art on October 22, 2010. Tabloid (2010) explores “The Case of the Manacled Mormon,” a UK tabloid story that kept gossip reporters busy and the British public transfixed in 1977 and ’78. The film will be presented in the MMoCA lecture hall at 4 pm, with Errol Morris present to introduce the film and participate in post-screening discussion with audience members.

Tabloid is one of two upcoming Errol Morris films to be presented at MMoCA in conjunction with the UW-Madison Arts Institute’s program, “Elusive Truths: The Cinema of Errol Morris.” The Fog of War (2003), which received the 2003 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, will be screened on October 15 at 7 pm. The Fog of War looks through the eyes of former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara to examine the psychology and reasoning of the government decision-makers who send men and women to war.
