During Richard Nixon’s presidency, three of his top White House advisors - obsessively filmed all events with Super 8 cameras. They were young, idealistic & dedicated, with no idea they would all be in prison a few years later. This unique 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. OUR NIXON is an all-archival documentary presenting those home movies for the first time, along with other rare footage, creating an intimate portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.
