Dochouse Presents: Our Nixon
On Thursday 19th September at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in central London, Dochouse presents the multi-award winning documentary OUR NIXON. The film will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with experts in the field.
Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, three of his top White House aides documented their experiences with Super 8 cameras. Young, idealistic and dedicated, H.R. ‘Bob’ Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin had no idea that a few years later they’d all be in prison.
Their home movies of the president, over 500 reels, were seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years.
Piecing together this Super 8 treasure trove with other archival TV interviews and audio recordings from the original Watergate tapes, director Penny Lane has created an extraordinary, intimate and revealing record of the Nixon era.
