I just saw a fascinating documentary at the Mill Valley Film festival called Eames: The Architect and the Painter. A behind the scenes look at the marriage and creative collaboration of Charles and Ray Eames (warts and all). With archival material and extensive interviews with friends, family, collaborators and critics, it’s an illuminating glimpse into the lives, creative process and influence of two of the Twentieth Centuries greatest designers.
It will broadcast on December 19th as part of the PBS American Masters series, and will also be screened in select theaters around the country starting in November. Look out for it.
