The advance screening will show episode two of the seven part series that focuses primarily on Theodore Roosevelt’s preservation work.

Following the family for more than a century, the documentary weaves the stories of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of one of the most prominent and influential families in American politics, into a single narrative. Legendary actress Meryl Streep portrays Eleanor Roosevelt in readings from her personal letters and writings, joined by Paul Giamatti, Edward Herrmann, Patricia Clarkson, Ed Harris, and Billy Bob Thornton, amongst others.

“I’m thrilled and grateful that the Hudson River Park Trust has partnered with us to share the second episode of ‘The Roosevelts’ in advance of the broadcast on PBS… Episode Two takes a look at Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency, including his passionate advocacy for preserving our natural resources for public enjoyment.  To experience his story in a place where New Yorkers come to enjoy nature along the Hudson River is very fitting.”-Ken Burns

The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, a new seven-part, 14-hour documentary by renowned American filmmaker, Ken Burns, will air for seven consecutive nights beginning September 14 on PBS.  In advance of the broadcast premiere, the film’s producers have selected one episode for a special, free screening to be presented in Hudson River Park!
