Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future

Produced by KDN Films. Edited by Scott Kemp.

This documentary chronicles the life and work of one of the most prolific, controversial and influential architects of postwar America, a dangerous apostate to the Modernist movement’s fanatical fervor, Eero Saarinen. With dramatic flair and courageous experimentation, Saarinen helped define the international image of the U.S. at the start of the Cold War with some of the most potent symbolic expressions of American identity such as the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the General Motors Technical Center, the TWA Terminal at JFK Airport, the CBS Building in Manhattan and Dulles Airport.

The 20 minute film traveled the world as a major part of an exhibition on Saarinen. Check out New York Magazine's review of the exhibit when it arrived there. Time magazine also covered the show.
