The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat (2nd Trailer)
In 1959, a working-class government employee in the tiny desert town of Lone Pine, California, asked world-famous modern architect Richard Neutra to design his modest family home. To his surprise, Neutra agreed. Thus began an unlikely friendship that would last for the rest of Neutra’s life. “The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat” tells the story of this house, and its stunning desert setting, through interviews with Richard Oyler, actress Kelly Lynch, who currently owns the house, Neutra’s two sons, and well-known LA real estate agent Crosby Doe.

“1950” | Edited by Marion Strickland
“1950” takes the black-and-white Simmel-Meservey mental hygiene film “A Date WIth Your Family” (produced in the titular year) and injects it with its Kodachrome outtakes. Closely juxtaposing the two creates a disorienting back-and-forth between the oft-lampooned veneer of the post-war social dynamics advocated by the video and the considerably more realistic, contemporary informality indigenous to the blooper reel. This combination yields a rare insight into the smothered humanity underneath a media facade so uniform that it has now become inseparable from conceptions of mid-century American life.
