MY ARCHITECT: A SON’S JOURNEY | December 12th, 2018
Directed by Nathaniel Kahn
2003, USA, 116 Minutes
Special Guest (Burlington Location): Director Nathaniel Kahn
A riveting tale of love, art, betrayal and forgiveness, the son of a legendary architect undertakes a worldwide exploration to discover and understand his father, Louis I. Kahn. 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 long-term affairs. Kahn’s only son Nathaniel sets out on a journey to reconcile the life and work of this mysterious man. Revealing the haunting beauty of his father’s monumental creations and taking us deep within his own divided family, Nathaniel’s personal journey becomes an investigation of identity, a celebration of art and ultimately, of life itself.
