American Masters "Eames: The Architect and the Painter" on WXXI-TV

Mon, 12/19/2011 - 10:00pm - 11:30pm

Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey’s unprecedented documentary reveals the lives, careers and creative genius that gave the world “The Eames Era.”

Eames: The Architect and the Painter airs Monday, December 19 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11).
“The Eames Era,” began in the optimistic flush of American victory during World War II, and the global impact of the Eames aesthetic continues to grow unabated today. Now, First Run Features is pleased to present the U.S. Theatrical premiere of Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey’s definitive and unprecedented cinematic foray into the private world of the Renaissance-style studio that Charles and Ray Eames conceived in a cavernous warehouse on a gritty street in Venice Beach, California where design history was born.  Eames: The Architect and the Painter will open at the IFC Center in New York on November 18th, at the Laemmle Music Hall in Los Angeles on November 18th and at the Balboa Theatre in San Francisco on December 2. Other play dates in select cities around the country to follow. Eames: The Architect and the Painter, insightfully narrated by James Franco, is the first film to be made about Charles and Ray since their deaths — and the only one that peers deeply inside the link between their artistic collaboration and sometimes tortured love for one another.
