Art House/A Break in Space. a film by Don Freeman
It started with a book.
Published last year by Abrams, my book "Artists' Handmade Houses" surveys 13 homes personally handcrafted by some of America's finest artists and craftsmen. The photography lovingly reveals each home to be a unique expression of the artists' aesthetic, and an extension of their body of work.
It became a film.
As I photographed, my passion for the artists and their amazing handmade houses expanded into the idea of a documentary film with all the artistry and beauty of the still photographs. For 2 years, I have merged filmed images with interviews of the artists, their friends and families, as well as authors with specialized knowledge in the field. Alastair Gordon, author of "Weekend Utopia" and "Spaced Out!" lends his wisdom as the narrator of the documentary, and a musical score composedby Jaime Rudolph hauntingly captures the mood of these unique homes.
Now it needs your help.
