Architect Erich Mendelsohn wrote twelve hundred letters to his wife Louise, many containing powerfully drawn sketches of his ideas. These dramatic drawings form the foundation of this captivating documentary. This visionary Jewish architect became the busiest architect in Germany with the help and support of his wife, who was herself a talented cellist. Designing the Einstein Tower, Schocken Department Stores, the Universum Cinema, and a beautiful home for his wife, opportunities suddenly disappeared as the Nazis rose to power. Forced to flee Germany and leave behind the home and life they loved, he then worked in England, Israel and the U.S. Award-winning filmmaker, Duki Dror, presents an illuminating documentary bringing to life the vibrant work and relationships of an extraordinary individual.
