Today, just two months before its 150th anniversary, the Rocky Mountain News printed and distributed its last issue. Check out this poignant, 25-minute video, Final Edition, about the last days of this newspaper and, by extension, the closure of many small newspapers across the nation in recent weeks and months.

Final Edition from Matthew Roberts on Vimeo.
