Ken Burns: On Story

Sarah Klein and Tom Mason created this touching film about Ken Burns and his take on what makes a good story.  The Burns recipe is 1+1=3.  The things that matter most, in his opinion, are the immeasurables – love, reason, faith, irony, conflict, paradox, etc.  These are the things that help stories to connect with us on a deeper level, making the whole, greater than the sum of it’s parts.
