Special Screening of Ken Burns’ THE VIETNAM WAR, 6:15PM

The USAHEC is pleased to host a two-night special event, featuring screenings of two new Vietnam War documentaries on September 12 and 13, 2017.

Part 1 of a two-night special screening of two up and coming Vietnam documentaries on September 12 and 13, 2017. WITF and the Army Heritage Center Foundation will show THE VIETNAM WAR–a landmark documentary film series by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick. Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, 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 exclusive sneak preview highlights service-people, the Vietnamese perspective, media and journalism, leadership, civilian life, the anti-war movement, veterans coming home, and more. After the screening, audience members can share your story and take part in a panel discussion with local experts. Cumberland Café will offer a special dinner menu to enjoy before and during the film screening event. Admission is free.

Part 2 of a two-night special screening of two up and coming Vietnam documentaries on September 12 and 13, 2017. WPSU will take part in the national dialogue sparked by Ken Burns’ film with “A Time to Heal: Exploring the Vietnam War Experience from a Pennsylvania Perspective.” “A Time to Heal” will focus on how Pennsylvanians experienced the war, the opposition to it, and its meaning today. They will tell stories of personal experience within a historical context on television, radio, and the web. The film also features footage from the USAHEC Collection. The documentary will have panelists who were impacted by the Vietnam War. They will include Soldiers and leaders the U.S. and South Vietnamese armies, Vietnamese refugees, and conscientious objectors to the War. Cumberland Café will offer a special dinner menu to enjoy before and during the film screening event.
