Nathaniel Kahn is an Oscar and Emmy-nominated filmmaker. His journey to know the father he lost as an 11 year old boy — the legendary modern architect Louis Kahn — became the highly acclaimed 2003 film, My Architect.
Nathaniel Kahn’s My Architect, takes us on a worldwide journey, from Quaker Philadelphia, to California, Israel, India and the streets of deltaic Dhaka, Bangladesh, to uncover the mysteries of a distant father -- looking for clues in Louis Kahn’s buildings, in his work relationships and even in the three families he had with three different women. It is a film with deep meaning to anyone who seeks to understand the relationship between art and love.
