The documentary Visual Acoustics, the mondernism of Julius Shulman, will be screening at 6:00 p.m. at Artel Gallery on Friday, October 8th.
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, Visual Acoustics celebrates the life and career of the late architectural photographer Julius Shulman. Shulman, who passed away last year, captured the work of nearly every 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.
Visual Acoustics won the Mercedes-Benz Audience Award for Best Documentary, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Austin Film Festival, the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Lone Star International Film Festival and Outstanding Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
