Brattleboro- The Architecture + Design Film Series will screen “My Architect: A Son’s Journey” (2003, Directed by Nathaniel Kahn, USA, 116 min) on Wednesday, December 12, at 6:30 pm at 118 Elliot. Doors open at 6 pm. Films are free and open to all.
“My Architect: A Son’s Journey” is a riveting tale of love, art, betrayal, and forgiveness, as the only son of legendary architect Louis I. Kahn undertakes a worldwide exploration to discover and understand his father. While Kahn’s artistic legacy was a search for truth and clarity, his personal life was secretive and chaotic. His mysterious death in a train station left behind three families, one with his wife and two from long-term affairs. Revealing the haunting beauty of his father’s monumental creations and taking us deep within his own divided family, Nathaniel Kahn’s personal journey becomes an investigation of identity, a celebration of art and of life itself.
