There are multiple incidences where current event coincide with events associate with storylines, whether films or nonfiction. First Sources sometimes are the only way to get fully relevant understanding of the circumstances leading to specific concerns in fiction. Fiction requires accuracy to be relevant in terms of time, place, prevailing norms of characters and surroundings .... blocking and creating articles and other materials relevant to a nonfiction activity as well as additional publishing can be invaluable.
Hence this session at the Mechanics Institute. . As a member of the international Federation of Journalist I have interviewed numerous people around the USA and in Europe to whom I would not as easily had access without a press outlet. Key aspects of Chasing Mercury required deeper evaluation of the life of environmental journalist and activist than on hand information could provide, as well as the history of key movements.
