Watergate tells the comprehensive story of the scandal, from the first troubling signs in Richard Nixons presidency to his resignation and beyond. Crucially, the film also situates Watergate in the context of all the issues it raised many of which, of course, now resonate powerfully with current events.
After the screening, Academy Award-winning director Charles Ferguson will speak in conversation with Harley Shaiken and Maria Echaveste.
Filmmaker Charles Ferguson is the founder and president of Representational Pictures. Ferguson won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Documentary with Inside Job. Fergusons films also include the Oscar-nominated No End in Sight: The American Occupation of Iraq and Time to Choose.
