The mission of The Better Angels Society is to further the extraordinary creative and educational legacy of Ken Burns. We are dedicated to ensuring that his historically significant films, as well as those of other filmmakers, are completed, broadcast, promoted, and reach as many people as possible through extensive educational outreach. Join us!
The immediate goal of The Better Angels Society is to complete funding for the documentary films currently in production, as well as the educational engagement tools that accompany each film. In addition, we are funding specific projects that fulfill a larger long-term mission, such as film restoration and preservation, supporting a new generation of filmmakers, and exploring other opportunities to ensure that Ken's work endures for many generations to come.
