Dick Cheney was the most powerful Vice President in American history. You probably have a strong opinion about him. But how much do you really know about him?
R.J. Cutler's powerful documentary, The World According to Dick Cheney, is a dramatic and intimate look at Cheney's life and career, featuring exclusive interviews with Cheney and his staunchest allies and fiercest critics. 92nd Street Y presents a sneak preview of the film, its only public showing in New York before it premieres on Showtime on March 15, followed by a post-screening discussion with Cutler and panelists to be announced. Find out how Cheney went from being a Yale dropout to the youngest-ever Chief of Staff for a President and then on to Congress, the Defense Department and a crucial role in shaping policy during the Bush administration. And hear from Cutler what surprised him as he learned about and talked with Cheney.
