One Thousand Pictures: RFK's Last Journey DVD

SKU ID #299827
$19.98
The assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 had a devastating effect on the people of the United States and left a deep psychic wound that is still felt by those who were inspired by his vibrancy and passion for positive change. Two days after Kennedy’s funeral mass in New York City, his casket was placed on a special train headed for Washington D.C. Thousands of mourners lined the 225-mile train route in an outpouring of grief and respect.

Photographer Paul Fusco took over a thousand pictures that day of the mourners who lined the route, documenting the tremendous outpouring of affection and support for the idealistic and beloved Kennedy. Through interviews conducted with dozens of the people photographed by Fusco along the NYC-to-DC route, as well as archival footage and the actual words of Robert Kennedy and his brother Teddy (who delivered a memorable eulogy to his brother), the film paints a vivid, deeply moving portrait of America during the tumultuous 1960s and speaks to the sense of hope and renewal that Robert Kennedy inspired and which abides to this day.

        Comments about this product:

        I was very moved by the film to the point it me in tears. I was 15 years old at the time of RFK's assassination. I was never aware (at the time) of the adulation he received. What I liked the most were the interviews of the people who were there. Their thoughts were very touching. The combination of the train ride and Bobby's speeches got me quite emotional. I highly recommend this film.

          An incredible documentary linking photographs taken of mourners lining the route of RFKs funeral train to interviews and reflections of the actual people years later.
