Dec. 3 - '10 Days In A Madhouse' Portrays A Pivotal Accomplishment For Women In Journalism

Women journalists aren't that much of a novelty these days. But back in 1887 when Nellie Bly broke down the doors of news rooms by going undercover in a mental hospital, the entire country paid attention to her bold investigative journalism. The film "10 Days in a Madhouse" is based on Nellie Bly's actual reporting. The film opens in Santa Fe on December 4 at the Regal Santa Fe Stadium 14. KSFR's Marguerite Kearns talked to director Timothy Hines and producer Susan Goforth about a film that is expected to get attention at the 2016 Academy Awards.
