Wright 150: Frank Lloyd Wright on Film

Tue 21 Mar 2017 - Tue 21 Feb 2017

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth with free screenings in March of two award-winning films examining the life and work of the legendary architect.

Frank Lloyd Wright: A Film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick will be screened Tuesday, March 14. 

The influence of Japanese aesthetics on Frank Lloyd Wright’s design vision was profound. Magnificent Obsession: Frank Lloyd Wright's Buildings and Legacy in Japan is the story of how he repaid that debt with his creation of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and forged relationships with Japanese architects who went on to alter Japan's cityscapes.

The program will be introduced by Frank Lloyd Wright Trust Curator, David Bagnall. Wright 150: Frank Lloyd Wright on Film is presented in partnership with the Chicago History Museum in their state-of-the-art Robert R. McCormick Theater, featuring movie theater quality and 7.1 surround sound.
