In this creative doumentary, filmmaker Heinz Emigholz presents a series of filmed photographs of the work of “the exceptionally inventive American architect, Bruce Goff. His work ... displays a unique style that sets it apart from most 20th Century architecture ... he is the great unknown of an original American form of architecture.
“Through his photo-driven style, Emigholz brilliantly exposes details of Goff’s structure that might otherwise be missed, making these fascinating artifacts even more intriguing.” (Editorial Review, Amazon, 2005)
