About the Movie
In his new documentary, photographer Don Freeman explores the homes designed and lived in by notable American artists, revealing the inventiveness derived from the dialogue between each artist's practice and the construction of their handmade homes. Ranging from the romantic (Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's Olana, framing views of the Catskills to echo his paintings), to the futuristic (Paolo Soleri's silt-casted structure Cosanti growing out of his bell-making experiments in the Arizona desert), to the sublime (George Nakashima's mid-century modern ode to the beauty and versatility of wood), what they all have in common is a fierce spirit of individual expression that deserves deeper examination in this age of architectural standardization.
Love this documentory and the time it took, amazing artists and their work.
My wife is an artist and we enjoyed watching this together. I never cease to be amazed at how creative persons can apply that characteristic to every dimension of life. These houses will make you want to renovate, reorganize, repurpose, reimagine your own living space.
Shallow and sedative
This film is like a disappointing never-ending trailer for a feature film that obvioudly dont exist, as you do not get the feel of the artists life or intent, simply because the film just swoops over the interiors and details...it would had been better with thorough focus on fewer artists instead of a shallow multi-artist touch-and-go-compilation like this...
