Neither Confirm Nor Deny

27th October, 2020

Neither Confirm Nor Deny is a documentary feature film about the incredible story of the CIA secret mission to recover a lost nuclear Soviet submarine three miles under the Pacific Ocean.

This feature documentary was directed by Philip Carter and produced by Sheryl Crown, along with Maggie Monteith and Chris Simon of Northern Stories and New Sparta Productions respectively, associate producer is Josh Green.

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet nuclear submarine K-129 sank in mysterious circumstances. Despite a massive secret search, the Soviets never found their missing submarine – but the Americans located it. 

The CIA hatched the  ‘Azorian Program’, the code name for their greatest covert operation spanning six years, to bring up the sub and its nuclear  secrets, in plain view.They did this using a cover story involving a fictitious ocean mining enterprise fronted by the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. Using the Hughes Glomar Explorer, a vessel built specifically for the salvage job, the Americans  attempted to lift  the K129 from the ocean floor. When their cover is later blown by legendary investigative journalists of the day, thorns in the side of the Nixon, Kissinger Administration,the CIA crafted what is known as the ‘Glomar Response’ a response that has become all too common and known for making journalists roll their eyes: ‘We can neither Confirm nor Deny’.

OnSight provided picture and sound post production with Adam Sample as online editor, Andy Lee as colourist, Andy Coles as sound supervisor and Jeff Halsey as post producer.
