We chose to make a documentary about the Model T because we believe that the assembly line “modelled” mass production today. We don’t think we would live in the society we do had it not been for Henry Ford’s revolutionary tweak on an older production method. We tried to imagine a world without the assembly line as Ford designed it, and we agreed that it wasn’t a very happy place. We imagined a time where no one had what they needed because they people that were in charge of making those things were behind due to making everything the “old fashioned way”. A world without mass production isn’t a very American one.
