The Bedford Playhouse is hosting a very special event, “An Evening with Kerry Kennedy” on Thursday June 5th 2018.

This film was produced and released 50 years ago and broadcast on network television and at the 1968 Democratic Convention. The film received an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short of 1968.
This deeply moving film is a tribute to a man who had hoped to win the presidency during the very turbulent year of 1968. Commissioned by the Kennedy family, the film begins with the funeral train to Washington, D.C. and follows the triumphs and tragedies in the late Senator’s life with extraordinary newsreel s, stills, and home movies. The film was produced in only four weeks, two months after Senator Kennedy’s assassination, in order to be screened at the Democratic National Convention.
