Filmmaker Ken Burns and his production partner and co-director Lynn Novick unveil their latest documentary, The Vietnam War. They were asked by Parade - why Vietnam, why now. Here's what they said:
"The seeds of many of the troubles that beset us today - alienation, resentment and cynicism; mistrust of our government and each other; breakdown of civil discourse and civic institutions - were sown during the Vietnam War. Until we find a way to come to terms with this unsettled and enormously consequential event, its ghosts will continue to haunt us."
