“For Whom the Bell Tolls,” is an HBO Documentary Films project that reflects back on Senator John McCain’s 60 years in service to his country. The film shares a title with McCain’s favorite book, just one of the many personal touches to the documentary.
HBO describes the film as an “illuminating, exclusive profile of one of the most influential forces in modern American politics.” The film includes unseen home movies and photographs. It pulls from past interview, speeches and newsreels and brings in key colleagues and political leaders who testify of McCain’s life.
Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama are interviewed in the documentary. It was produced and directed by Peter, George and Teddy Kunhardt. “For Whom the Bell Tolls” first aired on Memorial Day (May 28th) of this year on HBO.
