Truth About Abraham Lincoln, The (1992) 16mm, black and white, 18.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: History

"What becomes a legend most? Perhaps an inventive film, with a bit of whimsy, to explore the complexities of history and its many layers of rewriting and mythology. Buckingham uses a variety of wonderful devices to reopen the case of the 16th president, presenting a series of statements in a true/false format. This film proves that the most established "facts" can offer the most fertile ground for new questions." -- D. L., Onion City Film Festival program notes.
