"Visual Acoustics" Special Documentary Screening
Join MOV for a special screening of this award winning documentary that helps us understand the architectural brilliance and impact of Daniel Evan White. A film that forges an all-encompassing portrait of Modernism's influence and position in the North American mainstream, MOV invites visitors to "Playhouse: The Architecture of Daniel Evan White" for this special screening of a compelling view into how Daniel Evan White's work fits into the broader evolution of modern architecture. Replete with popcorn, cash bar and mingling.
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, Visual Acoustics is a documentary film that explores the life and career of the architectural photographer Julius Shulman, who died at age 98 in 2009. Shulman was widely considered to be the world's greatest and most well-known architectural photographer. The film highlights his iconic photos which were frequently populated with human models and striking landscapes, often combining the organic with the synthetic and melding nature with contemporary design. The film highlights how these images shaped the careers of some of the great architects of the 20th Century, notably Richard Neutra, John Lautner and the Case Study Architects.
