DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Since the first step in documentary filmmaking is getting a good sense of your subject, with no available film to study, we sifted through the many Davis works, reading and re-reading the finest scholars available.2 Not unusually, most of them relied heavily upon the scholarship of previous scholars. We had the one-time opportunity of committing to documentary video a comprehensive life of an important, maligned, revered, and misunderstood character in American history. [...] since we were beholden to no movie studio's time frame, we thought we ought to take the time that our subject - and the viewer - deserved. Because Davis 's life spanned most of the nineteenth century and is inextricably linked to the Civil War, we knew that we were turning over tender leaves of personal, regional and national memory.
