WIN! The Address: A Film By Ken Burns on DVD!
At Greenwood School in Vermont, its students, boys, ages 11 to 17, are asked each year to memorize the Gettysburg Address. These boys all suffer from learning differences that have made their progress extremely challenging.
Interweaving the history of this famous American speech with the journey of the boys, The Address reveals the timeless resonance of Lincolns words, while culminating in the triumph of the human spirit.
Embedding camera crews at the school for three months to chronicle the boys struggle to learn Abraham Lincolns immortal words and deliver them in a final public recitation, acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns has created a fascinating and inspiring documentary that shows them heroically confronting past failures and humiliations, ultimately opening the door to what Lincoln himself called a new birth of freedom.
