New York Times’ reporter Nicholas Kristof travels the world to find the single story that will make the rest of us care.

In his twice-weekly column, on his blog, and in his books, Nicholas Kristof takes a social problem and trains his focus as close-in as someone can get to find the single story that will make the rest of us care about what’s going on in other parts of the world.

It’s a method that’s been both criticized and praised, and which compelled filmmaker Eric Metzgar to make a documentary about Kristof.

That documentary, “Reporter,” debuts tonight on HBO. Full details about the documentary and airing time are available on HBO’s website.

Here’s the trailer:
