The Vietnam War Screening: Episode Six
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 Six: “Things Fall Apart” (January 1968-July 1968), RUNNING TIME: 1:29:18
On the eve of the Tet holiday, North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces launch surprise attacks on cities and military bases throughout the south, suffering devastating losses but casting grave doubt on Johnson’s promise that there is “light at the end of the tunnel.” The president decides not to run again, and the country is staggered by assassinations and unrest.
Please be aware that the film contains profanity, brief nudity and graphic violence, and is rated TV-MA.
This program is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association, PBS and WETA Washington, D.C.
