The "Eames Era" began in the optimistic flush of American victory during World War II, and the global impact of the Eames aesthetic continues to grow unabated today. With Eames: The Architect and the Painter, Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey have made a definitive and unprecedented cinematic foray into the private world of the Renaissance-style studio that Charles and Ray Eames conceived in a cavernous warehouse on a gritty street in Venice Beach, CA. Despite their unrivaled impact on American design, the persona of the steadfastly private Charles and Ray Eames have remained oblique to inquiring journalists while they were alive. The film draws extensively from a virgin cache of archival material, visually stunning films, love letters, photographs and artifacts produced in mind-boggling volume by Charles and Ray with their forty-year epoch of the Eames Office.
