On Thursday, April 9, Nerd Prom: Inside Washington Wildest Week, a new film by a former Politico reporter will debut at Landmark E Street Cinema in downtown Washington.

Those who like the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and the relentless parties surrounding it — think WHCD party mobster Tammy Haddad, who hosts her infamous annual garden brunch — may want to sit this one out because the film will be critical of the dinner.

This is Patrick Gavin‘s debut documentary film — not a bad start out of the gate since launching a new career.

A description on the film’s website describes the WHCD as among the reasons why he quit his job at Politico.

“A reporter quits his job covering the White House Correspondents’ Association’s annual dinner to lift the lid on what really goes on behind the scenes during the biggest week in the world’s most important city.” 

This year’s WHCD is scheduled for April 25.

Asked if it would be critical or funny, Gavin told The Mirror, “The movie definitely is critical of Washington’s priorities and the White House Correspondents’ Weekend is the lens through which we drive that point home.”
