AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

Ansel Adams: A Documentary Film

Aired Thursday at 10:00 p.m. on CPTV

In this elegant, moving and lyrical portrait of the most eloquent and quintessentially American of photographers, producer Ric Burns seeks to explore the meaning and legacy of Adams’ life and work. At the heart of the film are the great themes that absorbed Adams throughout his career: the beauty and fragility of “the American earth,” the inseparable bond of man and nature, and the moral obligation the present owes to the future.
