Ken Burns is, along with Michael Moore, the most influential non-fiction filmmaker of our time.
His films, which include 'Baseball', 'Jazz' and his breakthrough 'The Civil War', are sweeping, epic-length documentaries that bring pivotal eras in history to life.
Ken has had such an impact, they even named a shooting style after him: The Ken Burns Effect.
His latest film is 'The Central Park Five' - about five teens wrongfully convicted in the brutal rape and beating of a woman jogger.
The five are suing the City of New York for damages - and the city subpoenaed Ken's raw footage. It's Ken's first truly modern subject. And it's also history still in the making.
