On April 27, 2017, in partnership with KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, the LBJ Library hosted documentary filmmaker Ken Burns who previewed part of his and Lynn Novick's groundbreaking 10-part, 18-hour documentary on the Vietnam War.
After the preview, Burns sat in conversation with former LBJ Library Director Mark K. Updegrove.
About the Series "The Vietnam War" is a 10-part, 18-hour documentary film series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick that will air on PBS beginning Sept. 17, 2017.
In an immersive 360-degree narrative, Burns and Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film. "The Vietnam War" features testimony from nearly 100 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides.
The film will be accompanied by an unprecedented outreach and public engagement program by PBS, providing opportunities for communities to participate in a national conversation about what happened during the Vietnam War, what went wrong and what lessons are to be learned. In addition, there will be a robust interactive website and an educational initiative designed to engage teachers and students in multiple platforms.
