This Friday, Baker & Taylor will be hosting a live webinar with documentarian Ken Burns just days before his poignant documentary series, The Vietnam War, airs on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. Tune in from 12 to 12:30 p.m. to hear this exclusive discussion with Burns, in partnership with PBS.
Over 10 years in the making, this 10-part, 18-hour documentary series 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.
Burns has spent nearly 40 years making films, producing some of the most accomplished historical documentaries of our time. From the Academy Award nominated Brooklyn Bridge in 1981 to the landmark television series The Civil War, Ken’s films have won 15 Emmy Awards and received two Oscar nominations. Burns has been the recipient of almost 30 honorary degrees and in September of 2008 he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Over the years, each film he has created has asked one deceptively simple question, “Who are we Americans as a people?” His films look at more than just individual subject matter; they drive audiences to go further into themes that are central to who we are as a nation and as individuals.
Moderated by Stephanie Prange, the editor in chief of Home Media Magazine, this webinar is a can’t miss event.
