The Vietnam War Screening: Episode Two

Come to the Northeast Library and watch a section of the The Vietnam War by Ken Burns. We will be screening the entire series with a new episode each Sunday until all 10 have been shown.

Episode Two: “Riding the Tiger” (1961–1963), RUNNING TIME: 1:27:58

President Kennedy inspires idealistic young Americans to serve their country and wrestles with how deeply to get involved in South Vietnam. As the increasingly autocratic Diem regime faces a growing communist insurgency and widespread Buddhist protests, a grave political crisis unfolds. 

Please be aware that the film contains profanity, brief nudity and graphic violence, and is rated TV-MA.
