On June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy, the junior United States Senator from New York and a Democratic presidential candidate, was shot and mortally wounded in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning the California primary. Charged with his murder was Sirhan Sirhan, a 24 year-old Palestinian whose notebooks declared repeatedly that RFK MOST DIE! Although Sirhan Sirhan has recanted his confession, many questions remain unanswered.
The events leading up to RFK’s death still remain shrouded in mystery. Why was he rerouted away from his original destination within the hotel when he was shot? Reports at the time pointed to a mysterious girl wearing a polka dot dress seen fleeing the scene screaming “We shot him! We shot him!” Who was she? Why were CIA officers present at the hotel that evening? And why were additional bullets found but never entered into evidence?
These questions have been explored in depth by directors Dawn Porter and Ted Sarandos’ critically acclaimed documentary ‘Bobby Kennedy for President’ which examines not only RFK’s life and legacy but also sheds new light on the events of that fateful night. Through exclusive interviews with those closest to Robert Kennedy as well as never-before-seen archival footage, Bobby Kennedy For President is an illuminating look at one of America’s most influential politicians whose untimely death left a nation reeling.
