FILM OVERVIEW



Fallingwater, the Edgar J. Kaufmann house, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1934 and 1937. Considered the greatest American house of this century, it is sited on a spectacular waterfall in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. Fallingwater features rare home movies of Mr. Wright and Mr. Kaufmann and features personal accounts by Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., who was also a Wright apprentice, in which he relates how the house came to be, describes special features of the house, describes in detail the extraordinary building as well as the events that led to Mr. Wright’s commission. Fallingwater is the definitive film on the greatest creation of America’s greatest architect. A real visual treat comes with Fallingwater’s depiction in all four seasons.
