  • For John Grierson a filmmaker had a social responsibility. What went on the screen had to count in the struggle for a fuller life for all. To impress, to entertain, even to create films of permanent artistic value, was not enough for the man known as "the father of the documentary film." Films, Grierson felt, had to carry people forward in resolution and hope and he found the men and women in several countries who willingly followed where he led.
