Through the Lens: Our Nixon

Jan 5, 2014

 

    

Monday, we begin our 2014 Through the Lens documentary series with "Our Nixon." Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, three top aides obsessively documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras. The men were young and idealistic and they had no idea their footage would be seized during the Watergate investigation and they'd all end up in jail. Filmmaker Penny Lane joins Doug to talk about her film, which uses this archival footage to create an intimate portrait of Nixon's White House.

Join us Monday night, January 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center(138 W 300 South) in Salt Lake City for a free screening of the film. Lane will be on-hand for a Q&A immediately following the screening.

The event is free, but seats are available on a first come basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

This film is part of our Through the Lens Series, presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center
