The Address Exclusive Interview
A Ken Burns Documentary
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, whose youthful looks and apparently inexhaustible energy belie his actual age, has six projects in the pipeline. As he explains, it wasn’t an overabundance of spare time that led him to make THE ADDRESS, but rather passion for the subject matter. The film, which premieres on PBS Tuesday, April 15, deals with Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and follows a group of students as they attempt to memorize the relatively brief but enduring speech.
