Our Nixon


Directed by Penny Lane & Brian Frye

A feature documentary - coming in 2011!

Everyone knows that during the Watergate investigation, the FBI confiscated more than 3700 hours of secret audio recordings from the Nixon White House. But the FBI also confiscated 204 reels of Super-8 film from John Ehrlichman’s personal files. The confiscated films were home movies made by Nixon aides H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, Dwight Chapin, and Larry Higby. When the Watergate investigation ended, the home movies were filed away by the government and forgotten.

OUR NIXON presents those home movies for the first time, using them to create an intimate and surprising portrait of the Nixon administration.
