My Architect in March
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of My Architect for 28th March 2005 priced at £19.99. Louis Kahn was a visionary architect, who died alone and penniless. His life, however, was full of secrets: a married man who also had two affairs. The son, Nathaniel from one of the affairs, decides he wants to learn about the life and work of the father he never knew. This fascinating and touching film documents this personal journey and reveals the extraordinary legacy of a complex, misunderstood man.
Nathaniel Kahn’s compelling Oscar-nominated documentary is both a tribute to a visionary and a personal journey to discover the ‘architect’ of his own life, his father. Through interviews with his father’s colleagues, architects, and his own mother, Nathaniel also visits his lasting memory: the buildings themselves. These include Yale Art Gallery, the Kimbell Art Museum and the awesome pinnacle of his career, the National Capital of Bagladesh. My Architect is a moving but exhilarating film which will rebuild your faith in life-enhancing cinema.
Presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 Surround audio, bonus features include a Tartan exclusive interview with Nathaniel Kahn and deleted scenes with commentary by director.
