Join us for an advance look at Ken Burns' newest documentary that introduces viewers to the history of one of America's most iconic and ill-fated creatures.

23/24 Hop Film Event

Ken Burns and his team have crafted a new two-part, four-hour biography of this improbable, shaggy beast that has found itself at the center of many of the country's most mythic and heartbreaking tales. Episode One takes 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 animal's evolution, significance to the Great Plains, near demise and relationship to the Indigenous People of North America.
