by director Mark Richard Smith, running time 97 min.
This compelling documentary examines the life and work of the great American architect Louis H. Sullivan (1856-1924), one of the original practitioners of the Prairie School of design and a key influence on Frank Lloyd Wright. Sullivan’s legacy is especially visible in his adopted home of Chicago, but his work is found throughout the U.S. and includes St. Louis’ Wainwright Building – one of the world’s first skyscrapers – and Union Trust Building. Sponsored by Tjaden Interiors.
Director Smith will accompany the film and hold a post-screening Q&A. The film was featured at the prestigious Full Frame Documentary Film Festival; it screens in St. Louis as part of Cinema St. Louis’ St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.
