The Address - a new film from Ken Burns
The Address, a 90-minute feature length documentary by Ken Burns, will air on Rocky Mountain PBS on Tuesday, April 14 at 8pm.
The film tells the story of a tiny school in Putney Vermont, the Greenwood School, where each year the students are encouraged to practice, memorize, and recite the Gettysburg Address. In its exploration of the Greenwood School, the film also unlocks the history, context and importance of President Lincoln’s most powerful address.
