An advance screening of BEST OF ENEMIES, a film by Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon. The event begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m.; the film starts at 6 p.m. Following the screening there will be a discussion led by Ken Paulson, president of the First Amendment Center at the Newseum Institute and dean of the College of Mass Communication at Middle Tennessee State University.

BEST OF ENEMIES captures the legendary 1968 debates between two famed intellectuals and ideological opposites: leftist Gore Vidal and neoconservative William F. Buckley. Their televised sparring shaped a new era of public discourse in the media, demarcating the moment TV’s political ambition shifted from narrative to spectacle.
