In this unique documentary, German filmmaker Heinz Emigholz presents the work of inventive American architect Bruce Goff. Apprenticed at age 12 but never formally educated as an architect, Goff's work displays a unique style that sets it apart from most 20th-century architecture. The Episcopal Church in Tulsa built in the 1920s is a towering Art Deco icon, while the Hopewell Baptist Church in Edmond resembles a strange futuristic concrete teepee that challenges the surrounding landscape. Through filmed photographs, Emigholz brilliantly exposes the hidden details of Goff's fascinating structures. In German with English subtitles.
