This is a documentary about renowned architect Louis Kahn, whose best-known buildings include the Salk Institute and the capital building of Bangladesh, and who died penniless in Penn Station under somewhat mysterious circumstances. The man led more than one secret life: aside from his wife and “legitimate” daughter, he had children by two other women. This documentary is by his "illegitimate" son Nathaniel, who sets out to understand his father by visiting the work and by interviewing peers of his father such as Frank Gehry and I.M. Pei. Very moving. This one is up for the Oscar for best documentary.
