My Father, The Genius
"Blithe, brilliant, and intimate...a real-life "The Royal Tenenbaums." — Peter Keough, The Boston Phoenix
When estranged father, dreamer, and visionary architect Glen Howard Small bequeaths his daughter the task of writing his biography, she answers instead with a provocative film about his precarious career and thorny private life. At 31, Glen Small, founder and faculty member of the internationally acclaimed Southern California Institute of Architecture, was a rising star. At 61, he struggles to pay his bills. In MY FATHER, THE GENIUS, filmmaker Lucia Small digs deep to explore the delicate tension between her father's obligations to family and his life-long passion to save the world through architecture.
