Eileen Gray’s uncompromising vision defined and defied the practice of modernism in design, decoration, and architecture. Making a reputation with her lacquer work, she became a sought-after designer, then reinvented herself as an architect—a field in which she labored largely in obscurity.

Gray’s pioneering work is being rediscovered today, and her legacy remains elusive and compelling. Watch the trailer below.

Directed by Marco Orsini, 2014, 76 min.
