10 Questions for Henry Ford, a film by Andy Kirshner, examines the troubling legacy of Henry Ford 100 years after the publication of The Dearborn Independent and The International Jew. Now, as antisemitism is on the rise, this documentary art film follows the lingering ghost of Henry Ford through modern-day Detroit as he confronts a world that is both drastically different and disturbingly familiar. Award-winning filmmaker and University of Michigan Associate Professor Andy Kirshner carefully crafted this piece, using Ford's own words, to explore the complex social and historical questions we face today.
