Description

Join the Graduate Research Cluster on Modernist Studies for a special screening of the new, feature-length documentary about WWI novelist Ford Maddox Ford - "It Was the Nightingale: The Unreliable Story of Ford Maddox Ford".

The film is produced by Paul Lewis of Subterracon Films, and directed by Paul Lewis and Ryan Poe. Full description below:

"Ford's story brings together the great names in twentieth century American and European literature, figures such as James Joyce, Henry James, Stephen Crane, Joseph Conrad, Ezra Pound,  Jean Rhys, Ernest Hemingway, H.D., Wyndham Lewis, W.H. Hudson, H.G. Wells, Thomas Hardy and many more. They all have the enormously talented Ford Madox Ford at the center or periphery of their own well-known stories.

The film also features extensive treatment and never-before-seen footage of Ford's last partner, the Jewish-American painter, Janice Biala, captured but never released by filmmakers Judith Wechsler and Richard Leacock in Paris in 1993.

​Through principal conversations with eight contemporary voices who have helped re-shape our understanding of Ford, the film takes us on a documentary and impressionistic journey that we hope writers, readers and film-goers everywhere will embrace as their own."
