Neither Confirm Nor Deny (2020): Philip Carter’s Docu

NEITHER CONFIRM NOR DENY
Philip Carter recounts a CIA program that used Howard Hughes as cover during the height of the Cold War.

Adapting a nonfiction book written by that project’s director, Philip Carter’s Neither Confirm Nor Deny chronicles the CIA’s effort to retrieve a Soviet submarine that sank in the Pacific Ocean in 1968.

The sub was equipped with multiple nuclear missiles, and when it sank, the Soviet government didn’t know its location, but, according to the docu, US intelligence knew more than the ship’s owners.
