Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 4.3
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, VISUAL ACOUSTICS celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world's greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman captured the work of nearly every major modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California's modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.

Enjoyed this a lot.

Finally the deserved attribution to the master of the craft behind the countless images from the magazines that I grew up with. So many images now directly connected to a really well-told narrative of Julius Schulman's life and contribution to recording modern architecture and its key contributors. Must watch.
