WITF invites you to special community screenings of THE VIETNAM WAR--a landmark documentary film series by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick. Join us August 16 at the Willow Valley Cultural Center Theater, on August 29 at the Liberty USO of Fort Indiantown Gap in Annville, and on September 12 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle. All screenings begin at 6pm and are free and open to the public.

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides--Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The exclusive sneak preview highlights service-people, the Vietnamese perspective, media and journalism, leadership, civilian life, the anti-war movement, veterans coming home, and more.

After the screening, share your story and take part in a panel discussion with local experts.

Register to attend by filling out the form(s) below.

Supported by Willow Valley Communities and the Harrisburg office of the law firm of Saul Ewing LLP.
