1965 Ford Mustang

White Horse Picture’s Nigel Sinclair has announced that shooting is underway on the company’s new documentary A Faster Horse that will explore the history and legacy of America’s most iconic car, the Ford Mustang, which is celebrating its 50 year anniversary this year. This is the first project Nigel Sinclair will produce under the White Horse Pictures banner, which long-time business partners Sinclair and Guy East founded in 2014. Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), White Horse Pictures will produce the film with the cooperation of The Ford Motor Company.

In the tradition of vérité films such as Undefeated and Jiro Dreams of Sushi, A Faster Horse will take audiences on a journey directly through the eyes of Mustang lovers all over the world, not just from the perspective of Mustang enthusiasts, but also everyday people who hold their own unique connection to this automotive icon. No other car inspires the sort of passion Ford Mustang does, to such a broad spectrum of people in America and
around the world. Alongside these personal stories, Gelb will immerse himself with those who built the Mustang legend over the years and the next generation that will carry it forward all across the world.

A Faster Horse will also follow the Mustang’s journey through American history and feature exclusive rare, and never-before seen archival footage, as well as interviews with historians and Ford insiders including former and current Mustang designers all the way to the top ranks at the Ford Motor Company.

“In recent times, Steve Jobs has taught us that practical, everyday objects – a music player, a personal computer – can be objects of great aesthetic beauty. The Mustang was perhaps the earliest exemplar of this philosophy,” said Nigel Sinclair. ”There has never been a car that has resonated so deeply in American culture as the Mustang, and David Gelb will bring his unique cinematic approach to the project.”

“Ford has generously allowed our team full access to a wealth of archive materials, and unparalleled permission to document the design and creation of the 2015 Mustang,” said David Gelb.

    I am a fan of mustang, specially 1967 GT 500 Eleanor. First time I have watch the movie, I feel great with Eleanor…so much power and torque and the sound of the engine is overwhelming. I am dreaming to have one of those. Until now I can’t have it since its quite hard for me to have it.

    Thank you so much and more power

    Can’t wait to see this! We bumped into them whilst at the Shelby Gala during the 50th birthday celebrations. They were filming Parnelli Jones as he toured Shelby’s new facility. 3 of us were itching to get Parnelli’s autograph, so we effectively barged in on the filming. They were cool though, and said it all added to the Mustang story. We did have to sign a waiver though, should they decide to include it in the final cut. I’m sure we’ll end up on the cutting room floor, but it was worth it just to meet the legend that is Parnelli Jones! :)

    They were also filming at the Speedway the following day.

    The crew from “A Faster Horse” came out to my house in early March. They spent the morning interviewing me and filming my Mustang garage. My wife and I own two 1:1 Mustangs and collect everything Mustang from toys to literature to memorabilia. They are great people and I can’t wait to see the finished film. Happy 50th Birthday Mustang! Here’s to 50 more years!

    Take care and remember .. “Keep America Beautiful … Drive a Mustang!”
