BY JEFF KAROUB, AP — A film exploring the significant, complicated legacy of Henry Ford has received a financial boost from a Detroit nonprofit that supports the region’s automotive and labor history.

“Ten Questions for Henry Ford" is among roughly a dozen projects to receive a share of $66,000 from the MotorCities National Heritage Area.

The movie garnered about $9,000 through the University of Michigan Department of Performing Arts Technology.

Writer, director and producer Andrew Kirshner says the film is a “human portrait” that portrays the positive and negative aspects of Ford's life.

Kirshner teaches at the University of Michigan.
