Description: Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman

Director: Eric Bricker
Producers: Eric Bricker, Babette Zilch
Executive Producers: Lisa Hughes, Michelle Oliver

Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, VISUAL ACOUSTICS explores the monumental career of 98-year-old architectural photographer Julius Shulman. Populating his photos with human models and striking landscapes, Shulman combined the organic with the synthetic, melding nature with revolutionary urban design. The resulting images helped to shape the careers of some of the greatest architects of the 20th Century, with Shulman documenting the work of Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Pierre Koenig, John Lautner, Frank Lloyd Wright, and many others. Taking its aesthetic cues from Shulman's own sensual and nuanced photography, the narrative of VISUAL ACOUSTICS is built from a blend of Shulman's own images as well as in depth interviews with architect Frank Gehry, designer Tom Ford, artist Ed Ruscha, actress Kelly Lynch, writer Mitch Glazer, publisher Benedikt Taschen, Academy Award - nominated cinematographer Dante Spinotti, and a host of others. Through the exploration of both Shulman's art and uniquely individualistic life, the film offers an unforgettable portrait of Modernism's most eloquent ambassador. VISUAL ACOUSTICS recently won the Mercedes-Benz Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and has won the Audience Award at the Austin Film Festival, the Grand Jury Prize at the Lone Star International Film Festival. Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Schulman is part of a double feature preceded by Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight.
