Ken Burns

Ken Burns Media, LLC
See America through the eyes of award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns.

Includes a brand new playlist around the theme of Leadership with introductions from Ken and new clips from across his filmography, including his latest film, The Roosevelts.

This app is not a collection of Ken’s filmography—it’s an entirely new way of looking at American history, only available on iPad.

Ken has been producing documentaries for over three decades, including such films as The Civil War, Baseball, Jazz, The National Parks, Frank Lloyd Wright, Prohibition and Mark Twain. Now, he has returned to this body of work and selected scenes illustrating recurring themes in American history.

View this app’s streaming video content with one of these features:

• Timeline view: Zoom in and out to explore a chronological history of America. Select scenes from the films to learn about that particular moment.
• Theme view: Select a theme (Art, Hard Times, Innovation, Politics, Race, War, Leadership) to see a playlist of scenes selected by Ken. Each playlist illustrates common patterns in the American story. In the playlist “Race,” for example, you’ll see how moments from The Civil War, Baseball, Thomas Jefferson and Jazz are related.
• Film view: Select your favorite Ken Burns film, like The War or Baseball, to watch scenes from that film. See what themes appear in your favorite film and how they reappear in the other films.

NOTE: One playlist (around the theme of Innovation) is included free with download. To view five additional playlists, including over three hours of video and more exclusive content from Ken, unlock the full version from within the app for $9.99.

The Ken Burns app was designed with iOS 7 and Retina Display in mind, so every full-screen video is rendered in stunning quality.
