Get a sneak peek of Ken Burn's newest documentary, The American Buffalo, on Sunday, October 8 at 2 p.m. at Kan-Kan Cinema. The American Buffalo, a new two-part, four-hour series from Ken Burns, premiering October 16 and 17 on WFYI, is the biography of an improbable, shaggy beast that has found itself at the center of many of the country’s most mythic and heartbreaking tales. This event features highlights from this compelling new exploration of the American buffalo's past, present and future.
This free viewing will feature excerpts from the upcoming series taking viewers on a journey through more than 10,000 years of North American history and across some of the continent’s most iconic landscapes, tracing the mammal’s evolution, its significance to the Great Plains and, most importantly, its relationship to the Indigenous People of North America.
This event is part of the WFYI Live at the Kan-Kan's event series on the second weekend of each month. Sign up for regular updates by subscribing to WFYI Live email alerts!
