Directed by renowned independent filmmaker Kevin Willmott and narrated by acclaimed broadcast journalist Bill Kurtis, the film: William Allen White: What’s the Matter with Kansas, re-introduces the “Sage of Emporia” to new generations in a society that could benefit from a bit of his prairie wisdom. At once historical and remarkably timely, the film offers a modern perspective about one of America’s most illustrious figures. A journalistic giant who advised presidents and world leaders, befriended the greatest thinkers of his time, and was never shy about tackling the most controversial and complex issues. Featuring interviews with journalists, historians, authors, family friends and social commentators, including PBS’s Jim Lehrer, The Wall Street Journal’s Gerald Seib and several noted W.A. White biographers and authors, the film captures White’s career and life in its fullest.
