Charles and Ray Eames are modernist icons who 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 motivated all their work.
