Shown on all television networks and during the 1968 Chicago Democratic National Convention simultaneously, this moving film tribute to a man who had hoped to win the presidency created a historic moment when it brought the proceedings to a standstill and the crowd, in tears, to its feet.   

Commissioned by the Kennedy family, the film begins with the funeral train to Washington, DC and follows the triumphs and tragedies in the late Senator’s life with extraordinary newsreel footage, archival stills, and home movies. 

The film was produced in only four weeks, two months after the Senator’s assassination, in order to meet the Convention deadline. Guggenheim Productions, with the country’s resources at its fingertips, worked around the clock to complete this film honoring RFK and the Democratic Party. Robert Kennedy Rememberedis a poignant eulogy and compelling reflection on the spirit, quality, and commitment RFK brought to his life and work.
