Eames: The Architect and the Painter
Jason Cohn, Bill Jersey, 2011
USA | 82 minutes

Director Bill Jersey in person!

James Franco narrates this fascinating, revealing look into the lives and work of husband-wife team Charles and Ray Eames, two of the most influential designers of the 20th century. During their peak years of production, from right after the war through the early 1970s, the Eames designed chairs and other pieces of furniture that combined elegance with functionality, while pioneering both new materials and technologies. The film includes never-before-seen interviews as well as testimony from both family members and design historians, providing an in-depth look at both the personal and public sides of these influential artists.
