Inspired by the power of film to engage -- and believing that films can both entertain and change the way audiences view our collective past -- Joe Ricketts founded The American Film Company in 2008. Reflecting Ricketts' belief that true stories are often more compelling than fiction, TAFC aims to produce feature films that accurately portray extraordinary characters and events from American history. The company's first movie, "The Conspirator," recounted the story of Mary Surratt, the only woman charged in the plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. Directed by Robert Redford, "The Conspirator" was released in 2011.
