Eames: The Architect and The Painter Trailer
James Cohn and Bill Jersey both avid collectors and admirers of Eames Designs co-produced and wrote this feature documentary focused on the husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames whom 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 dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work. The film opens at Laemmle Music Hall in Los Angeles and IFC New York on November 18th.
