PBS Premiere: November 27, 1996
The Vietnam War Memorial was one of the most controversial monuments of its time. Thrust in to the eye of the storm was architect-sculptor Maya Lin, whose design for the memorial was chosen when she was a 21-year-old college student. Withstanding bitter attacks, she held her ground with clarity and grace.
It brought tears to my eyes . . . I can't wait to show it to my daughters. Maya Lin will be a role model for them. She is a great artist and this film captures her talent and her courage.”
— Siskel and Ebert
It begins stunningly as it recounts the controversy over Lin's superb Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.”
