Profile of the life and work of award winning architect Frank Gehry. In his first documentary, Academy Award-winning director Sydney Pollack turns his camera on to his long-time friend Gehry, one of the world's most celebrated architects and creator of some of the greatest buildings of the modern era, including the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Pollack examines Gehry's creative process, from his early abstract sketches and three dimensional models to the awe-inspiring finished structures. The film is shot in an informal style and features contributions from Gehry's contemporaries, clients and admirers including Philip Johnson, Dennis Hopper and Julian Schnabel.
