Summary Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, VISUAL ACOUSTICS - THE MODERNISM OF JULIUS SHULMAN celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world's greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman, who passed away in 2009, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California's modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images. VISUAL ACOUSTICS won the Mercedes-Benz Audience Award for Best Documentary at Palm Springs International Film Festival, Audience Award for Best Documentary at Austin Film Festival, Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at Lone Star International Film Festival, and Outstanding Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at Newport Beach Film Festival. The film screened with much acclaim at Los Angeles Film Festival (world premiere), Kimbell Art Museum, Festival International Du Film Sur L'Art, Harvard University, and Apple (Cupertino).ยก ABOUT JULIUS SHULMAN (1910 - 2009) Photographer of architecture, naturalist, educator, and commentator on urban form. One of the leading architectural photographers of the 20th century, Shulman developed close association with the modernist architects, principally those active in Southern California such as Gregory Ain, John Lautner, Richard Neutra, and R.M. Schindler. Shulman's images played a major role in crafting the image of the Los Angeles and "Southern California lifestyle" to the rest of the nation and world during the 1950s and 1960s. A prolific author, consultant, lecturer, exhibitor, and editor of his own vast archive, Shulman remained active up until his passing away in July of 2009.
