The Address

The feature-length film explores the Greenwood School’s work to create a learning environment for boys from diverse backgrounds in grades 6 through 12 with severe learning disabilities and to celebrate the students’ achievements. Training for an annual student presentation of the Gettysburg Address is central to Greenwood’s remedial language-based curriculum. The tradition dates to the school’s founding in 1978 in Putney, Vermont. The film, produced by Ken Burns, aired as part of an extended, yearlong national celebration of the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s delivery of the Gettysburg Address.
