Few recent presidencies can match the aura of mystery that—for worse rather than better, in this case—surrounds Richard Nixon’s time as chief executive. Now, a new documentary aims to shed some light on what it was like to be in the Nixon White House. The film uses archival footage shot on Super 8 home-movie cameras by three of Nixon’s top aides—H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, all of whom would serve time for their involvement in the Watergate scandal. The film was seized by the FBI, and only recently been rediscovered. Along with historical events, including the moon landing, Tricia Nixon’s White House wedding and the President’s visit to China, the home-movie footage captures many smaller moments, like Haldeman riding a bicycle at Camp David.
The filmmakers, Director, Penny Lane and Producer, Brian L. Frye are scheduled to attend this screening on Friday, September 27, 6:30 p.m. at the Bayview Street Cinema in Camden, as part of the Camden international Film Festival. Mac Deford will moderate the post-film discussion. Admission is $10.00 or included with the purchase of a CIFF Festival or VIP Pass.For information about CIFF and how to purchase a pass, visit http://camdenfilmfest.org/attend
