Film Festival – Concert of Wills: Making the Getty Center

This event is part of PS21’s FILM FESTIVAL – CONSTRUCT IT! Films about buildings & those who design them.

Saturday, August 6 – 8:30 pm


Concert of Wills: Making the Getty Center (1997, 100 min.)

Writer/director, Bob Eisenhardt, part-time Malden Bridge resident, will introduce the film. The film takes us through the fourteen year life cycle of the design and construction of the Getty Center, which was at the time the largest private construction project in the world. The film captures the drama of the clash of egos which caused the Getty Trust to hire an independent consultant to broker decisions. The filmmakers on this documentary are Susan Froemke, Bob Eisenhardt, and Albert Maysles.
