On March 18, 2019, the couple welcomed their firstborn child, Ever Allen Ford. Reilly claimed self-defense.

The film discusses how Ford Jr. ran after and pinned a gunman to the ground after David Breen, a former Manhattan assistant to the district attorney, had been shot. Yance Ford, who is transgender, is a recipient of the Creative Capital Award, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, a Sundance Documentary Film Program Fellowship, and was among Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2011. This love of sound, coupled with his fascination of the moving image has led him to become a film composer and sound designer; and one with a unique sonic palette. The film places Ford Jr. in the context of a larger group of young black men who have been shot and killed by white men, oftentimes with no justice following their deaths. Her documentary recording credits include Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (also at Sundance 2017), Stay Woke: The Black Lives Matter Movement, August Wilson: The Ground on Which I Stand, Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People, The Rise and Fall of Penn Station, as well as projects for HBO, History Channel and A&E. Yance Ford began production on Strong Island in 2008.

Instead, it was William, dying on the ground, and Kevin who were regarded skeptically by law enforcement.

Yance Ford is very active on her Instagram and Twitter account. Ford Jr. had fortunately received word that he was eligible for the job, but only six weeks later, he was shot and killed by a 19-year-old white male who had disrespected Ford Jr.’s mother.

“No,” the lawyer responds. Now living in New York, he recently composed music and designed sound for Judd Apatow’s 30/30 documentary on Mets legends Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry, and for Yance’s Ford feature documentary Strong Island. Yance Ford, who is transgender, is a recipient of the Creative Capital Award, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, a Sundance Documentary Film Program Fellowship, and was among Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2011. And though Ford Jr. had indeed exhibited misbehavior in the past — most notably by throwing a vacuum cleaner out of anger — he was also a compassionate and brave man. “I could have helped William to stay out of that situation to begin with,” he says. Yes, Leanne Ford is a happily married woman to her husband, Erik Allen Ford. All rights reserved. Ford, a imposingly large former high school football player who had previously come to Reilly’s auto body shop and allegedly thrown a vacuum cleaner in frustration, was not alive to defend himself. “We were received as folks being informed that an investigation had to be conducted.” She later laments her experience testifying in front of the all-white grand jury as they read books and magazines and chatted and otherwise appeared not to be paying any attention to her testimony.

The collaboration between Ragtag and Logboat strives to make locals feel comfortable going to the movies again. A deeply intimate and meditative film, Strong Island asks what one can do when the grief of loss is entwined with historical injustice, and how one grapples with the complicity of silence, which can bind a family in an imitation of life, and a nation with a false sense of justice. 1,318 Followers, 415 Following, 78 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Yance Ford (@yanceford) 2,532 Likes, 25 Comments - NOH8 Campaign (@noh8campaign) on Instagram: “Congratulations Yance Ford, for making history as the first transgender director of an #Oscar…” She directed and produced "Mission of Mermaids" on ocean health, and is currently in production on two films: one about agricultural breeders, farmers and chefs; the other on Bach's "Coffee Cantata." “I decide this is not right, that I must give voice to this story.”. 164 Likes, 7 Comments - Ford Foundation (@fordfoundation) on Instagram: “'Strong Island' Director Yance Ford on social justice filmmaking: "One of the primary…” He is currently working on projects from Lucrecia Martel, Michele Pannetta, Anup Singh and Shahaf Peled, to name a few.

Janus has cooperated with most of the influential Danish directors in the past 30 years; most significant is the lifelong creative relationship with the Academy Award winning director Billie August.

We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us. Uncomfortable yet engaging, they force the viewer to take in the grief and turmoil Yance Ford continues to face. She is a co-creator of Field of Vision. Alan’s narrative feature work includes the Tribeca Film Festival selection The Auteur, and the Sundance Film Festival competition film Toe To Toe. They did a spur-of-the-moment ceremony attended by family and close friends. “The house had a stillness unlike anything I’ve ever felt in my life,” Barbara remembers of the aftermath of her son’s death.

When the film premiered at Sundance in 2017, audiences were presented with a personal account of how Ford’s family coped with the tragic loss of William Ford in 1992.

Ford was black, Reilly white.
Strong Island chronicles the arc of a family across history, geography and tragedy - from the racial segregation of the Jim Crow South to the promise of New York City; from the presumed safety of middle class suburbs, to the maelstrom of an unexpected, violent death.
