The Vietnam War premieres Sunday September 17, 2017 at 8/7c on SDPB and PBS stations nationwide.
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 film features stories from a wide variety of perspectives - and we want to hear your voice too.
If you or a loved one experienced the events surrounding the war, you can either share a video or audio file, personal photographs, or even just write a short narrative in the comment box.
