This new documentary, narrated by Dustin Hoffman, explores the monumental career of the 98-year-old Los Angeles-based architectural photographer. Julius Shulman combines the organic with the synthetic, melding nature with revolutionary urban design in images that helped shape the careers of some of the key architects of the twentieth century, including Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Pierre Koenig, and John Lautner.

Following the screening, Shulman will sign copies of his book.

In addition, the Photographic Arts Council will have the limited edition, signed benefit print Disney Hall at Twilight by Julius Shulman and Juergen Nogai available for purchase.

"Was there any update on Julius' health?"

Juergen Nogai and one of the producers (sorry I forgot her name) did a 20 minute q&a afterward and said Julius wanted to be there but at 98 years old you just don't feel like doing too much some days. Hopefully he'll be back in action soon!
