Eames: The Architect and the Painter
Documentary on Charles and Ray Eames, the husband-wife combo responsible for heavily influencing modern architecture and furniture, considered by some to be the most important designers of their age. Narrated by James Franco.
"Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life – from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age – has been less widely understood."
