Documentary films on issues of import to our Republic allow us to have an informed-and-civil conversation about our history. The emotional connection to film inspires reading, critical thinking and acting on issues of import. The lessons learned from our past inform and inspire our future. Bringing this critical educational tool to as broad an American audience as possible is our goal.
A key component of continuing Ken’s legacy is to engage and empower the next generation of documentary filmmakers. The Better Angels Society is committed to paving the way for the filmmakers of tomorrow and honoring the legacy of Ken Burns.
