Most people know Richard Nixon secretly taped Oval Office conversations during his presidency. But few are aware that three of Nixon's top aides obsessively used home movie cameras to document their time at the White House; capturing everything from private moments on Air Force One to a visit to the Beijing Opera during Nixon's trip to China. The footage was buried in archives until recently, but along with newsreels and interviews, it's now featured in a new documentary. We meet the filmmakers and explore the Nixon presidency through the lens of a Super 8 movie camera.
