NAME OF FILM: ART HOUSE
DIRECTOR(S): Don Freeman
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Photographer Don Freeman has created a poetic and meditative journey through eleven houses that artists have built for themselves and reveals the inventiveness derived from each artist’s practice in the construction of their handmade homes. Included in this cinematic “Parade of Homes” are the hauntingly beautiful castle-like residence of tile designer Henry Chapman Mercer, the surreal desert megastructures of visionary architect Paolo Soleri, and the national historic landmark home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church which he designed to frame views of the Catskills to echo his paintings. Freeman’s film is both a love song to artists’ most intimate creation – their own habitats — and a call to action in preserving, promoting and visiting these architectural artifacts.
