“James Franco narrates this engaging story of master Modernists, Ray and Charles Eames, whose designs reshaped post-war America.

Directors Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey make clever use of the abundant Eames archive and dive into the heart of their dream factory in Venice, California, offering viewers a deeply personal vision of the couple and their artistic philosophy.

Former employees, friends and commentators further shape the story that charts their humble beginnings making low-cost functional furniture and medical aids for Navy servicemen, through to their grandiose creative endeavours for clients such as IBM, Polaroid, The New York and Moscow World Fairs.

A frenetic, joyous celebration of creativity and invention, Eames: The Architect & The Painter offers a fitting tribute to the legacy of Ray and Charles themselves.”
