Eames: The Architect and the Painter is a 2011 documentary film about American designers Charles and Ray Eames and the Eames Office. It was produced and written by Jason Cohn, and co-produced by Bill Jersey. The film moves between a narrative about the husband and wife team to one about the Eames Office and its accomplishments, starting with chair design, but also moving through architecture, photography and film. Most of the period images are still photographs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, but there are several film clips. Audio clips are interspersed with narration by James Franco. The film uses extensive interviews to frame the story. Interviews include Richard Saul Wurman, the founder of TED, Irish architect Kevin Roche, designer Bob Blaich, and screenwriter Paul Schrader; Lucia Eames and Eames Demetrios, Charles Eames' daughter and grandson; former Eames office designers: Jeannine Oppewall, Gordon Ashby, Deborah Sussman, and John and Marilyn Neuhart; historians Pat Kirkham, Jed Perl, and Donald Albrecht; and IBM consultant Zeke Seligson.
