This fascinating portrait of an eccentric visionary and his chaotic triple family life focuses on the world-renowned Philadelphia based architect, Louis Kahn. Director Nathaniel Kahn, Louis? adult son, is on a quest to understand and appreciate the work of his late father, to explore the thinking behind his stark yet spiritual designs, and to reclaim a filial connection with this complex and contradictory man. This Oscar nominated film is a quietly moving documentary that beautifully balances family drama, personal reflection and career assessment.
