Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Culled from more than 500 hours of personal Super 8 footage shot by Richard Nixon's three most trusted aides, Penny Lane's archival documentary Our Nixon presents an insider's look at one of the 20th century's most controversial administrations. The year was 1969. Thrilled at the honor of being personally selected to work alongside the President of the United States, White House aides H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, and Dwight Chapin stocked up on 8mm film, and began documenting their day-to-day life in Washington, D.C. Four years later, the trio had amassed hundreds of hours of historic footage -- film that would later be seized during the Watergate scandal, and hidden away for four decades. Now, for the very first time, that footage has been made public, allowing us to glimpse the inner workings of an administration that was bound for infamy as three of its key figures tell their personal stories in their own words.
