Eames: The Architect and the Painter
Friday, November 18, 2011
Bill Jersey, co-director of the documentary “Eames: The Architect and the Painter,” talks about the film—a look into the private world of the Renaissance-style studio that Charles and Ray Eames conceived in a warehouse in Venice Beach, California, where design history was born. “The Eames Era,” began in the optimistic flush of American victory during World War II, and the global impact of the Eames aesthetic continues today. “Eames: The Architect and the Painter” opens November 18 at the IFC Center.
