FSPL Presents - The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick

Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2017
Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: Fort Smith Public Library 3201 Rogers Avenue Fort Smith, Arkansa

Join the Fort Smith Public Library for an early special screening of The Vietnam War, a decade-long undertaking from filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. The presentation will highlight portions of the ten-part, 18-hour documentary series premiering on PBS, Sunday Sept 17. The 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—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The event will also feature a panel of community members discussing their own experiences and expertise with the war. This event is free and open to all.
