Join the World Affairs Council and the Dallas Bar Association for an exclusive film preview of Prohibition, a three-part, five-and-a-half-hour documentary film series coming to PBS this fall. Esteemed director of the film, Ken Burns, will lead a discussion following the screening.

Ken Burns has been making documentary films for more than 30 years. Since the Academy Award-nominated Brooklyn Bridge in 1981, he has gone on to direct and produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made. The late historian Stephen Ambrose said of Ken’s films, “More Americans get their history from Ken Burns than any other source.” A December 2002 poll conducted by RealScreen Magazine listed The Civil War as second only to Robert Flaherty’s Nanook of the North as the “most influential documentary of all time” and named Ken Burns and Robert Flaherty as the “most influential documentary makers” of all time.
