Throughout Richard Nixon’s presidency, three of his top White House aides obsessively documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras.

Young, idealistic and dedicated, they had no idea that a few years later they’d all be in prison. This unique and personal 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 one of the most ambitious and enthralling political documentaries ever assembled. Presenting those home movies for the first time, along with other rare footage, to create an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.

"Pieced together, these behind-the-scenes moments are a thrill for history buffs...this is raw Nixon." -Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News

"There have been so many documentaries about President Richard M. Nixon...[but] we’ll never see another that's as surprisingly and artistically keen as director Penny Lane’s eerie, beautiful 'Our Nixon.'" -Hank Stuever, The Washington Post

"This highly personal view of the Nixon years is, for obvious reasons, a sad and wrenching one—a film that is nonetheless filled with spirit, humor and a bountiful sense of irony." -Dorothy Rabinowitz, The Wall Street Journal
