Arguing the World

A celebration of ideas, debate and the courage of one's convictions, this lively and thought-provoking documentary explores the heyday of New York's Jewish intellectual community, from the '30s to the '60s, through the lives of four of its most notable - and combative - members: Daniel Bell, Nathan Glazer, Irving Howe and Irving Kristol. Weaving personal reminiscence, archival footage, images of New York and the voices of friends and critics, this film explores the passions, the issues and the era that shaped these engaging and brilliant men.
