We are committed to providing a place for expanded national and international understanding of the history that has and continues to shape and influence the President of the United States. Utilizing the site and community of America’s first presidential library and museum, filmmakers, film professionals and authors will inspire audiences to explore, understand, critique, and analyze the people, places, politics and power surrounding the American Presidency.
