[ON SET WITH] LILLY REICH

Jim Stephenson

INTERNATIONAL PREMIÈRE 

SYNOPSIS

A young professor decides to investigate the work of the designer and architect Lilly Reich and contrast it with her recognition in the media. To do so, she takes a journey through the main places where Reich had a significant presence, from her formative years and her early works to her period of collaboration with Mies van der Rohe and the solitude of her last years. Although critics have largely silenced much of her legacy, studies have recently been published that reveal Reich’s important contributions to architecture and design. The purpose of the work is to bring to light one of the many professional women in history.
