Movie Summary

Director:
Sydney Pollack
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13
Frank Gehry has exploded the landscape of modern architecture, transforming it from a conventional science into a sublime and majestic form of art. Rebelling against the status quo, Gehry's struggle to create the impossible has resulted in such contemporary masterpieces as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the stunning Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Beginning with rough sketches, then moving to models made of cardboard and tape, Gehry's genius transforms steel, titanium, and glass into the most heart-stopping structures the world has ever seen. Directed by his longtime friend and supporter, Academy Award?-winner Sydney Pollack (1985 Best Director, Out of Africa), the fascinating SKETCHES OF FRANK GEHRY looks inside the mind of the most acclaimed and controversial architect of the twenty-first century.
