Incessant Visions: Letters from an Architect
Duki Dror, 2011
Israel | Hebrew and German with English subtitles | 70 minutes

New York Premiere! Director Duki Dror in person in both screenings!

A cinematic meditation about architect Erich Mendelsohn based on his letters and a memoir by his wife Louise. As a young man, he drew sketches on tiny pieces of paper and sent them, from the trenches, to the young cellist waiting for him in Berlin. She believed in his genius and after World War I helped him become the busiest architect in Germany. When she planned to leave him for a communist poet, he built a perfect house for her. When the Nazis came to power, the couple escaped the house and Germany, and he turned his talents to creating buildings in the U.S. and Israel.
