"EAMES: The Architect and The Painter" Doc Released

"EAMES: The Architect and The Painter" released today in limited theaters.  Directed by Bill Jersey, this 1 hour 23 minute feature documentary is narrated by James Franco.  For those of us in Los Angeles, we have it up on one screen at the moment over at Laemmle's Music Hall 3, Beverly Hills.  The smart and cohesive film looks at the accomplishments and influence the design studio had over many industries for over four decades.  The Eames design Studio located at 901 Washington Blvd, Venice, CA seems as if it were the true precursor to today's major advertising and design firms.

For any purists out there, you can brush up on the film making of Ray and Charles Eames in their 1977 film entitled, "The Powers of Ten" explores dimension and sends us up into the galaxies above, only then to have us plummet back to earth at rapid pace and back into the hand of a picnicker.  I'm partial, I like the state at which we are in at 10 to the 22nd power.  I like the atmospheric conditions.
