Gideon C. Kennedy


Gideon C. Kennedy has died in urban legend, been worshiped by a fraternal organization of which he was not a part, and had a single barrel scotch that he can’t afford named after him. Interested in exploring other such factual fictions, he writes and co-directs with co-director and editor Marcus Rosentrater and their independent production company, Climenole LLC. Their last film “Dick-George, Tenn-Tom,” a sardonic look at the rivalry between President Richard Nixon and Governor George Wallace centered around Nixon’s visit to Mobile, AL, won two festival awards and played in over 30 cities in the Southeast. They are currently in the touring with their third short (a doc/narrative hybrid entitled “Clandestine”), writing their fourth, and arranging for the production of their first feature.
