The Vietnam War Screening: Episode Seven

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 Seven: “The Veneer of Civilization” (June 1968-May 1969), RUNNING TIME: 1:52:25

Public support for the war declines, and American men of draft age face difficult decisions and wrenching moral choices. After police battle with demonstrators in the streets of Chicago, Richard Nixon wins the presidency, promising law and order at home and peace overseas. In Vietnam, the war goes on and soldiers on all sides witness terrible savagery and unflinching courage. 

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.
