JOHN FORD,
THE MAN WHO INVENTED AMERICA

A documentary film by JEAN-CHRISTOPHE KLOTZ

 

​Both the teller and the founder of the American myth, John Ford was far more than just a director of Westerns, the role to which he is often limited. Over a career that lasted fifty years and nearly 150 films – Stagecoach (1939), The Grapes of Wrath (1940), The Battle of Midway (1942), The Searchers (1956), The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), to name a few –, the director to have won the most Oscars never stopped putting America’s grand story to film, creating the American legend, exploring both its promises and failures.
