'Ford V Ferrari' has Traction at the Opening Night of the Winter KCET Cinema Series with Director James Mangold

Support Provided By

Director James Mangold is an award-winning writer and director known for making sophisticated ensemble films in a wide range of genres while keeping constant the powerful themes, original characterizations, sterling performances and striking imagery that have come to define and unify his work. His ten feature films to date includes the award-winning "3:10 to Yuma," "Walk the Line," "The Wolverine," "Girl, Interrupted," and "Logan."

The son of renowned painters Robert Mangold and Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Mangold was raised in New York’s Hudson Valley. He graduated in film and acting from California Institute of the Arts and, after a few years of working in Hollywood, decided to go to Columbia University’s film school. He began writing the film "Heavy" while studying under Oscar®-winning director Milos Forman, which went on to win the Director’s Prize at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival and was selected to represent the United States at Director’s Fortnight in the Cannes Film Festival.

Recently, Mangold directed "Logan," the final installment of the "Wolverine" trilogy, which he also co-wrote with screenwriters Scott Frank and Michael Green. The film received much critical acclaim, becoming the best-reviewed film of the whole "X-Men" franchise, as well as one of the highest grossing films of 2017. Mangold is slated to direct an adaptation of the Don Winslow novel "The Force," which centers around corrupt NYPD officers, for 20th Century Fox.
