On September 28, Join Film Movement for AALTO, a Captivating Doc About One of the 20th Century’s Most Influential Designers and Architects

Journey into the life and work of the defining figure in Scandic design and one of the greatest modern architects, Alvar Aalto. Recounting the intimate yet tragic love story he shared with his architect wife, Aino, the film provides a cinematic tour of their creative process and iconic buildings all over the world — from their most stunning buildings in Finland and a library in Russia to a student dormitory at MIT, an art collector´s private house near Paris – and many other unique places. The Aalto’s maintained a profoundly humanist vision that put people at the center of design, and their wide-ranging projects spanned work in furniture and home goods design through to huge international architectural projects. They mixed with, and influenced, major figures of modernist art and design including Le Corbusier, Gropius, Moholy-Nagy, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Narrated by experts in the field and featuring never-before-seen archival footage, family photographs, diagrams, and painstaking research, AALTO “sheds useful light on the man, and women, behind the organic curves.” (Oliver Wainwright, The Guardian)
