OPB and PBS invite you to join us for an evening with documentary filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick for a preview and live conversation about their new 10-part, 18-hour documentary film series The Vietnam War before it airs on TV.

In an immersive narrative, The Vietnam War tells the epic story of the war as it has never-before been told on film. It features testimony from nearly 100 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. Six years in the making, the series brings the war and the chaotic epoch it encompassed viscerally to life.

This special event will feature highlights from the film, followed by a discussion with Burns, Novick, and former Air Force Chief of Staff and retired Four-Star General Merrill McPeak.

Seating begins at 7 p.m.; the event begins at 7:30.

Event tickets on sale now at http://bit.ly/2nBDiTF, the Portland’5 Box Office, TicketsWest outlets or by phone: 800-273-1530.

The Vietnam War will premiere on OPB TV in September 2017. Funding is provided by Bank of America; Corporation for Public Broadcasting; PBS; Park Foundation; The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations; The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; National Endowment for The Humanities; The Pew Charitable Trusts; Ford Foundation Just Films; Rockefeller Brothers Fund; and Members of The Better Angels Society.
