Who is the Director?

According to AMC Filmsite's Film Term Glossary the director is the creative artist responsible for complete artistic control of all phases of a film's production, for translating/interpreting a script into a film, for guiding the performances of the actors in a particular role and/or scene, and for supervising the cinematography and film crew. The director is usually the single person most responsible for the finished product, although he/she couldn't make a film without support from many other artists and technicians.
