November 23, 1963. 10:01AM.
Less than 24 hours earlier, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in the streets of Dallas.
As a nation reels with shock and confusion, President Lyndon Johnson receives a telephone call from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, updating him on the progress of the investigation. The recording of that conversation would later be destroyed. Only a transcript survives.
A story of cover-up and denial that continues to this day, The Fourteen Minute Gap explores researcher Rex Bradford’s discovery of the erasure, the shocking revelations of that call, and his attempt to get that discovery out to the national media.
2006 / A Film by TYLER WEAVER / Produced for THE MARY FERRELL FOUNDATION
