1:00 PM – Eames: The Architect and the Painter
Charles and Ray Eames were modernist design icons best known for their mid-century furniture creations. This James Franco-narrated film gives a glimpse into the unconventional marriage of the hyper-creative husband-and-wife team and their L.A. studio, dubbed “The Eamery.”


(Jason Cohn & Bill Jersey, 2011, 84 min.)


3:00 PM – Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, a joyful and fascinating portrait of the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture into the mainstream, including the sleek marvels of modernist legends like Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra and Frank Gehry.


(Eric Bricker, 2009, 84 min.)
