In a moment marked by resurging antisemitism, follow the ghost of Henry Ford on a modern-day journey in this creative and thought-provoking film that explores his complicated legacy. Then join filmmaker Andy Kirschner for an online discussion. 

Drawing on startling archival footage, 10 Questions examines the still-impactful imprint of Ford’s antisemitism on fascist and white supremacist movements. It also explores his brutal resistance to organized labor and his tragic relationship with his forgotten son Edsel.

Andy Kirshner is a multimedia artist, award-winning musician, filmmaker, and historical researcher. His work has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, among others, and his films have toured festivals in the US and Europe. Kirshner teaches at the University of Michigan.

Andy Kirshner will be interviewed by Spertus Institute's Director of Jewish Studies Dr. David N. Gottlieb.
