RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesEric Bricker, Visual Acoustics
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 10/16/09
Actor Eric Bricker makes his directorial debut with the award winning documentary Visual Acoustics, a portrait of Julius Shulman, the premiere photographer of American Modernist architecture. Shulman, who died at 98, proves to be a remarkable on-camera subject, and his work is practically canonized in this fast-paced account. Bricker, whose film has been honored at several festivals and is a candidate for Academy Award recognition in February, 2010, explains how he found his subject a decade ago, and what he learned from Shulman in a conversation held in a SoHo basement (27 minutes).
