DEL:100 , dir. Craig Volk
Del:100 is a visually haunting documentary short that highlights the career of centenarian journalist Delores Plested. Born in 1908, Del witnessed and reported on many of the major events of the 20th century. Her life experiences included writing for the New York Times and The Ladies Home Journal in the 1940s, observing the Hindenburg dirigible before its tragic crash and meeting many celebrities. Later, she was a trail blazing female reporter in Colorado who covered Eisenhower, Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover when Ike had his summer White House in Denver. Del also covered Jackie Kennedy’s Aspen holiday with John-John and Caroline. Her amazing life is celebrated in her own words and accompanied by poetic cinematography and a jazz score. Del:100 offers to the viewer a poignant account on the amazing life experiences of this bold woman.
