Join the Louisiana Architecture Foundation, North Louisiana Jewish Federation, and director Gregory Kallenberg for the red carpet world premiere of their documentary film Unexpected Modernism: The Wiener Brothers Story. The premiere will be held at The Strand Theatre of Shreveport at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jun. 25. Tickets are available now for $20-$30 each.
The 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.
