Ken Burns: Here and There Premieres Tonight on Rhode Island PBS
The documentary viewing will be followed by a conversation between Ken Burns and director Dante Bellini Jr.
On Thursday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m., Rhode Island PBS will premiere Ken Burns: Here and There, a film about the life and work of the documentary filmmaker, followed by a conversation between Ken Burns and director Dante Bellini Jr.
Ken Burns: Here and There, directed and produced by Bellini, follows Burns’ love for filmmaking and the evolution of his career throughout the years. Burns is known for his Academy-Award-nominated Brooklyn Bridge documentary from 1981 and has since directed and produced a number of other known documentaries.
According to the Rhode Island PBS website, the documentary focuses on “Ken’s love of storytelling, his love of small-town life, and his love for a bridge in Brooklyn. The documentary also reveals a strong reciprocal love from his neighbors and colleagues — those who admire his passion as an artist and those who share that passion as colleagues and storytellers themselves.”
Viewers will have the opportunity to view the film and a conversation about the making of Ken Burns: Here and There, and contemporary issues in our country.
