‘Our Nixon’ To Close ND/NF

The 42nd New Directors/New Films slate was revealed today and TFI Documentary Fund grantee Our Nixon will have the honor of being the closing night film.

Directed by Brian Frye and Penny Lane, this documentary is an unprecedented, insider’s view of an American presidency, chronicling watershed events like the Apollo moon landing, the pathbreaking 1972 trip to China, and Tricia’s White House wedding, as well as more intimate glimpses of Nixon in times of glory and disgrace as the entire film is comprised of Super 8mm footage shot by Nixon's closed aides.

Presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art, ND/NF will run March 20-31.

Read how Frye and Lane obtained the footage for their film.

Our Nixon will also screen at SXSW in early March. If you'd like to support the film's SXSW premiere and beyond go to their Kickstarter page.
