Community members are invited to a presentation by one of the nation’s most acclaimed filmmakers on Oct. 27, when Ken Burns visits Brookdale Community College in Lincroft.

Winner of fifteen Emmy Awards and a two-time Academy Award nominee, Burns received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2008 for his nearly 40-year career as a documentary filmmaker.

Burns, whose works include “The Civil War,” “Baseball,” “Jazz,” “The Central Park Five,” “Brooklyn Bridge” and “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” is regarded by critics and historians as one of the most influential documentarians of the last four decades, said Brookdale history professor Jess LeVine.

“Throughout his career, Ken Burns has brought vivid life to some of the most important historical events in our nation’s history,” said LeVine, who will host the Oct. 27 program. “This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the great filmmakers of our time.”

The Oct. 27 program will feature a discussion of Burns’ past and future projects, including the upcoming film series “The Vietnam War,” and a video retrospective of his work.

The program will begin at 12 p.m. in Brookdale’s Collins Arena, 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft. Parking is in lots 6 and 7. Tickets are $10 for community members and $5 for students with a valid school or college ID. Free tickets are available for current Brookdale students with a valid ID. Advance tickets are required.

In preparation for Burns’ presentation, Brookdale faculty will also host a free “Ken Burns Film Series” this fall discussing some the director’s most popular works.

Community members are invited to watch and discuss portions of “Jazz” and “Baseball” on September 26; or “Twain” and “The Central Park Five” on Oct. 12.
