    World Premiere of “Unexpected Modernism: Wiener Brothers Story” at the Strand Theatre now 6/25/19

    Thursday, Jun 25th 6:00p to 9:00p
    The Louisiana Architecture Foundation (LAF), in partnership with the North Louisiana Jewish Federation and director Gregory Kallenberg, are proud to announce the world premiere of the documentary “Unexpected Modernism: The Wiener Brothers Story”. The red carpet premiere will take place Thursday, April 2nd at the Historic Strand Theatre in Shreveport. The event is the culmination of two years of filming which included interviews with members of the Wiener family, architecture experts, and the authors of The Modernist Architecture of Samuel G. & William B. Wiener, Karen Kingsley and Guy Carwile. The 43-minute film tells the story of Jewish architects Samuel G. and William B. Wiener, half brothers from Shreveport, whose modernist designs of residential, institutional, and commercial buildings from the 1930s through the 1960s made Shreveport an early hub of International Modernist design in the United States. “Unexpected Modernism: The Wiener Brothers Story” will premiere at a red carpet celebration in Shreveport on April 2nd at The Strand Theatre, which will include the world premiere screening of the film, special guest appearances, and a post-film panel discussion featuring architecture luminaries. Tickets are on sale now through the Strand Theatre box office. The trailer for the film is available at unexpectedmodernism.com. All previously purchased tickets and reservations will be honored.
