Charles Henri Ford Actor Himself 1 1000001
A chronicle of the life of American artist Charles Henri Ford, whose influence has spanned the last 70 years. Born and raised in the South, Ford put his stamp on the world of literature when he founded "Blues", a literary magazine which published works by emerging writers. One such writer, Parker Tyler, prompted Charles to join him in the lap of counterculture, Greenwich Village. In 1932, they co-authored the semi-autobiographical novel "The Young and the Evil". Radical for its non-judgmental view of gay life, the book was banned in the US. Ford was as connected to the Surrealists of the 40s as he was to the Pop artists of the 60s. Through the use of dramatizations and interviews with Ford and his contemporaries, including Allen Ginsberg, Paul Bowles and Dorothea Tanning, a portrait emerges of one of America's most influential and enduring artists.
