Politics on Film Festival features The Congress by Ken Burns

Ernest F. Hollings Library Program Room
Oct 20, 2010
Politics on Film Festival continues this month with a free screening of The Congress, a documentary by Ken Burns. For 200 years, the United States Congress has been one of the country's most important and least understood institutions. In this elegant, thoughtful and often touching portrait, Ken Burns explores the history and promise of this unique American institution. Politics on Film Festival is a monthly event presented by South Carolina Political Collections. Each event will offer a free screening of a film relating to government and politics, an introduction to the film, free pizza and soda for the first 25 guests, and discussion after the film’s conclusion. The screenings begin at 4:30 in the Hollings Library and are open to the public. Subsequent films will be shown the third Wednesday Nov., Jan., Feb. and March. Food is allowed in the Library for this event only.
