ArCH Film Fest Screening: The Architect with Director Jonathan Parker
November 11, 2016
510 Texas Ave.
Houston, TX 77002
About the Film:
When a couple sets out to build their dream house, they enlist the services of a visionary modernist architect, whose soaring ideas are matched by only his ego. The woman is swept away by the uncompromising creative artist whose personality provides a stark contrast to her practical husband's. She is so taken she hardly notices the Architect is building HIS dream house.
Director Jonathan Parker will be at the event to answer questions about the film after the screening.
