Really excited for this one. I’m a bit of a documentary nerd anyway, so naturally Ken Burns is one of my loves. But to have a Ken Burns documentary dealing with the primary issue this Nation faced during my childhood, the Vietnam War, paired with the music of the era soundtrack created by Trent Reznor, is going to be nothing short of amazing.
The article states that this will be a 10-part series and is scheduled for this fall. I’ll post more when I learn the actual schedule. Can’t wait.
Ken Burns and Trent Reznor would seem two unlikely collaborators, but both describe their recent work on the upcoming PBS documentary on the Vietnam War as among the most satisfying of their careers.
