Eames: The Architect and the Painter

2011, 84 mins, colour, American film with Hungarian subtitles
D: Jason Cohn & Bill Jersey

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America?s most important designers. 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. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.
