EP 208: Ken Burns & Lynn Novick Re-examine the Vietnam War

September 14, 2017

Acclaimed documentary filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick (The Civil War, Baseball, The War) discuss their epic 10-part film The Vietnam War which airs 9/17 on PBS.  They discuss how the Vietnam War continues to evolve 40 years later, the ways their own perceptions have changed since they were young people growing up in the turbulent 1960’s, and how hindsight has given birth to some humbling and surprising epiphanies among those who fought on both sides.  They ponder if some of the lessons of Vietnam have changed America for the better, they share what Vietnamese audiences have had to say about their film, and the man behind the acclaimed miniseries that re-examined the American Civil War weighs in on the Confederate statue controversy.

 

Episode 1 of The Vietnam War airs Sunday, September 17 at 8/7 Central on PBS.  For more information, visit www.PBS.org or at www.kenburns.com.  Follow Ken and Lynn on Twitter at @KenBurns and @LynnNovick
