One of the most distinguished editorial cartoonists in the world, Paul Conrad has won three Pulitzer Prizes in addition to a long list of journalism’s most prestigious awards — although his favorite distinction is his 1973 inclusion on Richard Nixon’s enemies list. An extraordinary artist and journalist, Conrad epitomizes the fiercely independent voice that has been disappearing from American news media in recent years. Featuring nearly 200 Conrad cartoons and interviews with the artist’s family, friends and colleagues, PAUL CONRAD: Drawing Fire is a documentary tribute to this legendary editorial cartoonist.
