Cert: PG Year: 2003 Length: 116 mins
Louis I Kahn ranks among America's greatest modern architects, yet his refusal to compromise resulted in many unfulfilled projects by the time of his sudden heart attack at Penn Station, New York in 1974.
Unknown to his 'official' family he had also fathered children by two other women. Among them is Nathaniel Kahn, director and narrator of this unique celluloid collision of therapy and celebration, which asks whether his father's social stature could excuse or even explain such destructive behaviour.
Above all this is a fascinating, touching human story: when was the last time you cried at an architecture documentary?
Audience Award, Chicago IFF, 2003
a tremendous American documentary. . toughly cerebral, unbearably emotional
