“part political thriller and part courtroom drama, with moments of Shakespearean grandeur”
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
“a near definitive portrait of the granddaddy of 20th-century political scandals, in all its nitty, gritty, dirty-tricks-and-Tricky-Dicks glory” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
Timing is everything, and as Americans prepare for a 2020 election, here comes the powerful documentary, WATERGATE by Academy Award Winning director Charles Ferguson (Inside Job, 2011 Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature), that revisits the infamous political scandal which resulted in the only presidential resignation in U.S. history.
After a successful festival run the world over, WATERGATE makes its Canadian debut in Toronto for a theatrical run beginning June 14 at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, screenings in two parts. Ferguson breathes new life into the conspiracy, combining exclusive interviews and declassified documents with creative re-enactments of famous roles.
WATERGATE tells the full story of how President Richard Nixon and his White House staff were brought to justice. New interviews with journalists, senior Nixon administration officials, members of congress, and prosecutors – combined with archival footage and newly sourced information from the Nixon White House tapes – will bring a fresh perspective.
