Event Description

“Our Nixon” (2013) with director and producer Penny Lane, presented by the Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series. The event includes the screening of the film as well as a discussion with the director.

During the Nixon presidency, three of his top White House aides – John Ehrlichman, H. R. Haldeman and Dwight Chapin – documented their experiences with Super-8 home-movie cameras from 1969 to 1973. Young, idealistic and dedicated, they couldn’t have imagined that a few years later they’d be in prison. Inadvertently they provided viewers with a window into a turbulent moment in American history. “Our Nixon” is an all-archival documentary presenting those home movies for the first time, along with other rare footage, creating an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.
