Special FREE Screening – Exclusive Clips from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s 10 Part Film, The Vietnam War.
Docutah International Documentary Film Festival is proud to include a special free screening of exclusive clips from The Vietnam War, the new 10 Part documentary film from award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, premiering on PBS stations on September 17. This groundbreaking documentary series tells the epic story of one of the most divisive and consequential events in American history.
Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam.
Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. THE VIETNAM WAR features more than 100 iconic musical recordings from greatest artists of the era and haunting original music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the Silk Road Ensemble featuring Yo-Yo Ma.
THE VIETNAM WAR is a production of Florentine Films and WETA
