Future History 1968: François Truffaut Finds His Father And His Legacy

The iconic filmmaker sparked a rebellion and hunted for his long lost father — all while making some of France's most acclaimed movies.

François Truffaut, one of the most prolific directors of his time, led a personal life that might have been as cinematic as his work.

He hired a detective agency to find his biological father at the same time that he shot a film about that same agency; he walked out on his wedding to one of his stars; he even started protests that found so much support among youth, global film stars, and politicians that they took on a life of their own.
