FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FILM
Filmmaker Michael Miner will be on hand to present his film, ROMANZA: The California Structures of Frank Lloyd Wright, at the San Rafael Film Center this Sunday. From the Film Center: "From his first California commission in 1909 to his death in 1959, Wright designed more than 80 projects for the Golden State, and more than 25 were built. The buildings were grand and modest, public and private, and came from each era of Wright's seven-decade career. With access to every California Wright building, Romanza journeys around the state, from the Los Angeles textile block houses seen in dozens of Hollywood films, to his only San Francisco commission, a building he described as a "glass of champagne," as well as the Berger House in San Anselmo, for which he also designed an adjacent doghouse. Writer/Director: Michael Miner. (US 2011) 90 min. 4:15pm screening plus discussion."
