Open City Cinema is excited to present Penny Lane and Brian L. Frye's new feature length documentary OUR NIXON,  an all-archival documentary. 

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 at the National Archives, and forgotten for almost 40 years.

Preceded by two found-footage short films, by Laura Mackin and Brian L. Frye

Resonating Reconciliation 
CKUW 95.9 FM airs the radio series Mondays from 5:30-6pm after Inner City Voices.

CKUW participated in a project through the NCRA (National Campus Community Radio Association) that enabled us to contract one of our volunteers to produce a 30 minute documentary for a series called Resonating Reconciliation.  

The project was funded by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the documentaries highlight the experiences of First Nations' and the legacy of Indian Residential Schools.
