Citizen Hearst, directed by Leslie Iwerks and narrated by William H. Macy, traces the 125-year history of the Hearst media empire, from William Randolph Hearst's pioneering and controversial days of headline-grabbing newspapers and yellow journalism to the global impact of the company's many successful newspaper, magazine, television and digital brands that have shaped our culture. Iwerks provides a rare glimpse behind the glass walls of the Hearst Tower, interviewing top magazine and fashion editors of Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Esquire and Town & Country, among others, while also traveling to San Simeon, California, for unprecedented access to the Hearst Castle and interviews with Hearst family members. The film's other interviewees include Oprah Winfrey, Dan Rather, Mark Burnett, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Bob Iger, Leonard Maltin, Dr. Oz and Heidi Klum. Official Web Site
