Ken Burns and the National Parks
We have just watched an exclusive sneak preview of
Burns' film highlights the amazing achievement of the National Parks as the first time in all of human history when land was set aside "not for the nobles or the rich, but for everyone." It's the "the Declaration of Independence applied to the landscape."
As Burns told the audience at the World Savers Congress, the project began as a historical account, but soon evolved into what he described as "the kind of things today's World Savers Award winners are all about--personal transformative experiences."
After seeing the first minutes of this film, there's no doubt that we'll all be tuning in to its September 27 debut on PBS.
