Thursday, June 21, 2012 |  6:00 PM at the Montclair Art Museum

Joint Meeting with Architects League of Northern NJ

Cocktails/Registration: 6-7PM
Film: 7:30-9PM

Romanza is the third Frank Lloyd Wright documentary from writer/producer/director Michael Miner. With unprecedented access to every California Wright building, Romanza journeys all over the state, from the Los Angeles textile block houses famous for their appearances in dozens of Hollywood films, to Wright’s only San Francisco commission, a building which he designed as a “glass of champagne”, from the cinder block homes of the San Joaquin valley, to the “Ship’s prow” home on the beach of Carmel bay, from Wright’s contentious relationship with oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, to perhaps the most charming of all Frank Lloyd Wright stories, the design for a doghouse in response to a 12-year-old’s letter.

We visit all 25 buildings, including the 3 California “legacy” projects, built long after Wright’s death. Also included is substantial material on Wright’s unbuilt California work, some of the most fantastically imaginative structures he ever designed.

California. Although he was prolific elsewhere, in no other place did Wright better demonstrate his passion for the beauty, the magic, and the wonder, of the art form that is architecture.
