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.
The movie will be shown at Miami’s own O CINEMA. O Cinema is a cutting-edge independent cinema located in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, that specializes in showing first-run independent, foreign, art, and niche market films. With the Miami International Film Festival approaching, O Cinema will host many diverse films being shown. Eames: The Architect and the Painter, is only just a preview of some other great films on architecture and architects that will be shown at the festival.
