This Oscar-nominated documentary features director Nathaniel Kahn searching to understand his father, noted architect Louis Kahn, who died bankrupt and alone in 1974. He explores his father’s past, interviewing architects such as Frank O. Gehry, as well as members of the multiple families started by the philandering Louis. What emerges is a portrait of a brilliant but unreliable man whose creations,which are featured prominently in the film, still astound.
Introduced by Cleveland architect Sally Levine, an instructor in the CWRU Department of Art History and Art.
