The Legacy of Vietnam

The latest from acclaimed filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, The Vietnam War is a 10-part documentary film series on PBS that tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through the 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.

Get an inside look at the new series with the filmmakers, who are joined by best-selling Vietnamese-American author Duong Van Mai Elliott and former U.S. Senator and Vietnam War veteran Bob Kerrey. Excerpts from the documentary will be screened.
