About


The Better Angels Society supports documentary films by Ken Burns and affiliated filmmakers, and is dedicated to continuing their legacy. Our mission is to ensure historically significant films are completed, broadcast, promoted, and shared in ways that reach and inform as many people as possible through robust educational outreach. 

We are also working to ensure that the next generation of documentary filmmakers who have been inspired by Ken Burns and his team receive the education, mentoring, training, and support they need to continue his legacy.

More Americans get their history from Ken Burns than any other source.

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.
