Family Flicks Film Series: Films of Charles and Ray Eames

Co-presented with UCLA Film and Television Archive

Charles and Ray Eames revolutionized the form, function and manufacture of furniture, architecture and industrial design in the 20th century. Their influence remains as boundless today as was their passion and creativity throughout their careers, a joyful collaboration that also encompassed photography and filmmaking. The Eames made over 100 short films between 1950 and 1980, including the inimitable Powers of Ten (1977), Tocacata for Toy Trains (1957) and Blacktop (1952). This program presents a selection of their films, each one reflecting the sense of curiosity, craftsmanship and play that the motivated all their work. Digital video, color and b/w, approx 70 min.
