Eames: The Architect and the Painter

Check out this trailer for what promises to be an awesome documentary on the Eames.  This painter and architect duo carved their niche into the history of design, beginning with their famed lounge chair and ottoman, continuing with graphic design, photography, architecture, and visionary ideas for companies such as Westinghouse, Boeing and Polaroid.  Directed by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey, the documentary will run in New York at the IFC Center on  November 18, and will have its broadcast premiere December 19 as part of the PBS American Masters series.   Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.  As the clip explains, ”They were introducing people to look at the world differently.” Enjoy!
