What courage looks like when you’re a woman in the media

An advance screening of The Post was co-presented by Cinema Nova and Crikey in Melbourne on Wednesday January 10. The following is the text of a spoken introduction to the film.

Welcome to Cinema Nova, my name is Bhakthi Puvanenthiran I’m excited to be here tonight to introduce this much discussed and timely film. I know you're all mostly here for Meryl Streep so I'll be brief.

First of all I acknowledge that we are meeting today on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. I acknowledge the historic and ongoing connections to land that was never ceded and pay my respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. By way of introduction, I’m one of three associate editors at Crikey. I’ve previously worked at The Age in arts, entertainment and business reporting as well as the ABC in local radio.
