“Burns, the most accomplished documentary maker of his generation … translates the materials of history into television drama of an epic order … so rich in conception and so rewarding in execution that it almost redeems the promise of the medium.” –New York Times.
Ken Burns’ deeply influential documentary series—the most widely viewed documentary in history—forever changed the way we perceive the Civil War, the imagined impact of non-fiction filmmaker and the ways in which we can reimagine our shared history. In honor of its 25th anniversary, we celebrate a groundbreaking, brilliant and deeply moving re-investigation of the moment when America lost its innocence. (U.S., 1990, 690 minutes total)
