Featuring a glimpse at the ten-part, 18-hour documentary film series, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick recount the Vietnam War. Including testimony from nearly 80 witnesses, Vietnamese combatants, and civilians from both sides, the series provides a visceral and immersive account of the epoch. Utilizing digitally remastered archival footage and audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations, the series serves as a platform for a national discussion about what happened during the Vietnam War and what lessons are to be learned. Discussion with co-director Lynn Novick and Stephen Cushman (UVA), introduced and moderated by Marc Selverstone (UVA)
