The Vietnam War Screening: Episode Ten
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 Ten: "The Weight of Memory” (March 1973-Onward), RUNNING TIME: 1:51:57
While the Watergate scandal rivets Americans’ attention and forces President Nixon to resign, the Vietnamese continue to savage one another in a brutal civil war. When hundreds of thousands of North Vietnamese troops pour into the south, Saigon descends rapidly into chaos and collapses. For the next 40 years, Americans and Vietnamese from all sides search for healing and reconciliation.
Please be aware that the film contains profanity, brief nudity and graphic violence, and is rated TV-MA.
