Eames: The Architect and the Painter. A Documentary.

Onr of the things I miss about living in a much larger city like LA is the fact that they get films mid-sized cities like KC hardly ever get. Case in point, “Eames: The Architect and the Painter” which will be opening in select cities on November 18th”.

The film looks inside the lives of the famous designers Charles and Ray Eames, exploring their lives through interviews with family members, design historians and archival material. The documentary contains never before seen behind the scenes footage of the designers at work as well as interviews.

The film is Narrated by actor James Franco, this is the first film to be made about Charles and Ray since their deaths. The documentary takes an in-depth look into their personal relationship as well as their artistic collaboration.

A full review of the film can be found here at  The Hollywood Reporter or here at Variety.

Eames: The Architect and the Painter will open at the IFC Center in New York and the Laemmle Music Hall in Los Angeles on November 18, and at the Balboa Theatre in San Francisco on December 2. Other dates in select cities around the country will follow. If you are like me, you can also catch it on PBS on December 19 as part of the PBS American Masters series.
