The Vietnam War is a ten-part, 18-hour documentary film series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, airing on PBS in September 2017. In an immersive 360-degree narrative, Burns and Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film.
USA TODAY and PBS have teamed up to examine the lasting repercussions of the divisive Vietnam War through a special print edition. “VIETNAM: Still haunts us” is now available on newsstands in advance of this powerful, documentary series.
In an exclusive essay, entitled, “Why do the ghosts of Vietnam continue to haunt us?”, Burns and Novik discuss the continuing role Vietnam plays in our politics and culture, as well as the parallels between a deeply polarized public a half-century ago andnd today.
