To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the president, we created a video program for the special exhibit A Nation Remembers, which focuses on the grand multi-day state funeral staged after the assassination. The 16-minute video showcases stunning, rarely-seen color film footage from the National Archives, originally shot by the United States Navy. The film features no narrative track, enabling visitors to be transported by the evocative imagery and archival audio, heightening their feeling of immediacy and immersion.
We also created a six-part video series utilizing JFK’s secret tape recordings of White House meetings during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Originally on display at the National Archives in Washington, DC, the films highlight key moments and heated conversations from the 13-day ordeal, along with evocative imagery and maps, bring visitors directly inside the Oval Office to witness first-hand the deliberations and decision-making as two super powers poised on the brink of nuclear war.
Other programs include a film about JFK in Cape Cod for the special exhibit Presidential Getaway: JFK on Cape Cod. The video is an intimate look at the Kennedy family’s vacation days spent at Cape Cod. We also produced a program commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women.
