The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames were America’s most influential industrial designers. Admired for their creations and as individuals, they have risen to iconic status in American culture. 

This film draws on a treasure trove of archival material, as well as new interviews with friends, colleagues and experts, to capture the pair’s personal stories while placing them in the context of their fascinating times.

Directed by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey (M, 2011, 84 mins)
