A MacArthur-supported documentary focused on Nigeria's maternal mortality rate – the second-highest in the world – has been selected as the debut film for the new Economist Film Project. Excerpts from the film also aired on the PBS NewsHour.
MacArthur supports the production and distribution of news and documentary programs for television, radio, and the web that help inform the American public about important domestic and international current affairs and policy issues.
