Billy Graham 2x60, 1x120

Billy Graham focuses on Graham’s influence upon and interactions with American politics and civic culture from 1949 to 1980, with emphasis on his relationships to presidents and the tensions between Graham’s big tent evangelicalism and the separatist wing of fundamentalist leaders in the 1950s. Bookending the film are sections examining Graham’s path to renown and his final crusade and death; woven throughout are vignettes from his family life and portraits of his followers. The film has been conceived to tell the story by interweaving the voices of historians, scholars, witnesses, followers, friends, family, and Graham himself to create a kaleidoscopic portrait of a singular figure in the world.
