The moving, untold family story behind Abraham Zapruder’s film footage of the Kennedy assassination and its lasting impact on our world.

Abraham Zapruder didn’t know when he began filming President Kennedy’s motorcade on November 22, 1963 that his home movie would change not only his family’s life but American culture and history, as well. Now his granddaughter tells the whole story of the Zapruder film for the first time. With the help of personal family records, previously sealed archival sources, and interviews, she traces the film’s complex journey through history, considering its impact on her family and the public realms of the media, courts, Federal government, and the arts community. Part biography, part family history, and part historical narrative, Zapruder shows how twenty-six seconds of film changed a family and raised some of the most important social, cultural, and moral questions of our time.

Zapruder's embattled descendants defend their claim to the film, while researchers, conspiracy theorists, disapproving editorial writers and the federal government swirl around them, and millions of dollars hang in the balance. John Berendt, New York Times bestselling author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
