"How do you cover 100 years in 12½ minutes? That was the question when we set out to make a short film to celebrate the centennial of the Pulitzer Prizes.
We wanted a film that paid homage to the past but also conveyed the present and pointed to the future. We wanted the film to reflect the four themes of our celebration, all subjects of much prize-winning work over the years: Social Justice and Equality, War and Peace, The Presidency, and Power and Accountability.
We turned to the Newseum in Washington, D.C., for help with the film. We invited several Pulitzer Prize winners for on-camera interviews. Jeanine Butler, who heads Butlerfilms, produced and directed the film."
