The Vietnam War, Preview Screening & Community Discussion

The week before millions of viewers watch the premiere of Ken Burns’ new landmark documentary, The Vietnam War, New Hampshire Humanities will partner with NH PBS to host a series of preview film screenings and facilitated discussions, in five communities around the state during the week of September 10.

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells an 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 flm explores the human dimensions of the war through testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it—as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The documentary series premieres on September 17th on NH PBS. To watch the trailer, click HERE.
