Virtual JFK will be showing at the Cleveland Museum of Art

2009-06-02 15:56:58

An important and well-received documentary called Virtual JFK will be showing at the Cleveland Museum of Art June 12 ONLY.

Combining rare footage from numerous Kennedy press conferences, in-depth interviews and a close reading of the documentary record, the film argues that critical decisions about the use of restraint and coercive diplomacy often require greater acts of courage than the use of force. Produced by fellows of the Watson Institute for International Studies, the film applies what Harvard historian Niall Ferguson calls "virtual history" to consider what President John F. Kennedy might have done in Vietnam if he had not been assassinated in 1963 and was instead re-elected in 1964. More information about the film appears below and at www.virtualjfk.com.
