Vietnam: A Conversation With Ken Burns and Lynn Novick

Documentary filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick are coming to Portland this summer for a preview and live conversation about their new 10-part, 18-hour documentary film series The Vietnam War. The event will feature a preview screening of highlights from the documentary, followed by a discussion with both filmmakers. Joining them for the conversation will be former Air Force Chief of Staff and retired four-star General Merrill McPeak.

In an immersive narrative, The Vietnam War tells the epic story of the war as it has never-before been told on film. It 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. Six years in the making, the series brings the war and the chaotic epoch it encompassed viscerally to life.

Funding is provided by Bank of America; Corporation for Public Broadcasting; PBS; Park Foundation; The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations; The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; National Endowment for THE Humanities; The Pew Charitable Trusts; Ford Foundation Just Films; Rockefeller Brothers Fund; and Members of The Better Angels Society.
