The world premiere screening of Frey II: The Architectural Interpreter, the second part of a two-part documentary from director Jake Gorst and produced by Design Onscreen.
In 1939, Swiss-born Corbusian architectural envoy Albert Frey embarked on a decades-long journey of discovery. His world travels and love of nature would lead him to carve out a new style of modernism, leaving its indelible mark on the desert community of Palm Springs, California. With never-before-seen archival films, photographs and interviews, Frey II: The Architectural Interpreter continues to reveal the mystique of an influential architectural master.
For guests that select Preferred Seating + Post Screening Reception, the meet and greet with wine and hor d’oeuvres, will follow the film screening and will be held at the new V Wine Lounge in Palm Springs.
