Thursday, director Robert Gordon joins us to discuss his documentary film Best of Enemies, which profiles the caustic rivalry between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley Jr. Two brilliant and eloquent men who represented two wholly opposite ideologies, they engaged in a first-of-its kind series of debates on the ABC network in 1968 during the political national conventions. The broadcasts burned with the fire of the men’s mutual hatred for one another and it laid the groundwork for the future of TV.
Along with Morgan Neville, Robert Gordon co-directed the documentary film Best of Enemies. It's screening in the 2015 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Documentary Competition section. Screening times are:
Saturday, 1/31 at 2:30 p.m., The MARC (Park City)
