“Our Nixon” with Filmmaker Penny Lane
May 8, 2013 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, three of his top White House aides obsessively documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras. Young, idealistic and dedicated, they had no idea that a few years later they’d all be in prison. This unique and personal visual record, created by H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, was seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years. Penny Lane’s Our Nixon (2013) presents an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before. Co-sponsored by the Department of the Arts at RPI and iEAR Presents!
