As an award-winning documentary filmmaker, it is should be no surprise that Ken Burns tells the truth.
So why would a TMZ.com photographer be bold enough to approach him about a documentary featuring the Kardashians? The question was rhetorical. Stick to photography, Colin!
Burns commented that “we live in a terrible celebrity culture” and “that our lives are about accomplishments” dismissing the silly notion of a Kardashian film with plain disgust.
Burns has previously earned an Academy Award nomination for his 1981 film “Brooklyn Bridge.” With numerous other excellent documentary films to his credit, most recently Burns brought together of the three of the most influential people in American life in “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” a documentary exploring the lives of President Theodore Roosevelt, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
As Winston Churchill once said, “The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”
Thanks, Ken Burns, for telling the truth.
