Storyline

Chronological look at the life and creative drive of Eileen Gray (1878-1976), Irish artisan and architect. Gray lives in Paris and in Roquebrune in a house, E-1027, that she designed and furnished. The film discusses her discovery of Asian lacquer art, her partnership with Seizo Sugawara, and her long-term relationship with avant-guarde architect Jean Badovici. A friendship with Le Corbusier sours, Gray builds and abandons a second home on the Blue Coast, and she returns to Paris where she worked until her death. Her love of motion and of mechanical things - from motor cars to rocket ships - colors her work. Zeev Aram describes her at 92, sharp, engaged, and still creating. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
