Director Marco Antonio Orsini Interviewing Architect Robert Rebutato

Orsini's film deftly moves between different projects and phases of Gray's ever-evoloving career, though it does concentrate on e.1027, a home that stands as both a key statement and symbol and, according to Rebutato, the setting of a difficult story involving Gray and Corbusier. When Corbu visited the home in 1938 to paint murals, Rebutato says that he expressed a "desire to stain the walls," a statement many claim show the famed architect's envy and ego at play.
