My Architect


Dir. Nathanael Kahn, (2003).
One of the most absorbing docs in recent years, this is a story of love, betrayal, and aesthetics in which the son of a legendary genius goes on a five-year quest to connect with his late father’s life and work. Great architect Louis Kahn died in 1974, leaving three families who didn’t know each other. Nathaniel combines riveting interviews with his father’s celebrated peers with visits to Kahn’s incomparable built legacy.
