THE CIVIL WAR, the award-winning film produced and directed by Ken Burns, will be rebroadcast over five consecutive nights in September 2015. The broadcast, which coincides with the 25th anniversary of the series’ initial broadcast in September 1990, will present for the first time a newly restored, high-definition version. This is also the first time the film will be seen with the same fidelity and framing as the negative that Burns and his co-cinematographers Allen Moore and Buddy Squires shot more than 25 years ago.
On September 11 after the last part in this series, delve deeper into the border war that triggered the Civil War right here in our own back yard. A co-production of KCPT and Wide Awake Films, the film tells the story of the lead-up to the Civil War along the Missouri-Kansas border between 1854 -1861, through the eyes of Missourians & Kansans on both sides of the thorny issue of slavery.
