Synopsis

A pioneer of helicopter reporting, Zoey Tur, along with then-wife Marika Gerrard, changed broadcast news with their action-packed live coverage of ’80s and ’90s Los Angeles. This intense work delivered a dose of adrenaline for Zoey (known then as Bob), but chasing news eventually took its toll.

MUBI's take

Charting some of the most momentous televised broadcasts in public memory, Matt Yoka’s fascinating documentary is a thrilling insider look at the nascent rise of helicopter news reporting. Set against an increasingly voyeuristic media landscape is a complex portrait of a marriage’s crash landing.
