Friday, June 09, 2017

7:00 PM Detroit Film Theatre

(USA/2017—directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick)

An advance look at some powerful highlights from Ken Burns’ upcoming 18-hour documentary The Vietnam War, airing in its entirety later this year on PBS. The film delivers testimony from nearly 100 witnesses – soldiers as well as civilians – and in-depth analysis from those on both sides of the conflict. Historic broadcasts, home movies, and revelatory, newly-released audio recordings will all be part of the complete version of this massive, six-year long project from the director of the landmark PBS series, The Civil War. Producers Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein will be on hand to discuss the process of creating the film. (Approximately 90 minutes)

Festival passes are now on sale. Individual tickets will be available May 9 at the festival website.
