Our Nixon

Our Nixon (Orig.) / 2013 / United States / 85 min

During Richard Nixon’s presidency, three top White House advisors obsessively filmed all events with Super 8 cameras, not knowing they would all be in prison for Watergate a few years later. OUR NIXON creates an intimate portrait of the presidency through Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Chapin as never seen before.
