Bauhaus: The Face of the 20th Century (1994) at UbuWeb Film & Video. "...The Bauhaus school of design, craftsmanship and architecture, founded by Walter Gropius at Weimar in 1919, was largely responsible for revolutionizing the structure of art school tuition, and its basic tenets of design are now a modern commonplace. This documentary covers the full range of the work of the Bauhaus, which encompassed architecture, design and disciplines as varied as pottery, weaving, theatre and ballet. It also appraises the effect that the Bauhaus's revolutionary method of workshop instruction had on the creativity of the students. The film brings together thought-provoking comment from architects, teachers, ex-students and current experts on the Bauhaus, and includes amusing anecdotes and vintage footage of the work of its founding members."
