“Sad People in Modernist Homes in Popular Films” Launch & Screening with Benjamin Critton


The Saguaro Hotel hosts a film screening and publication launch on behalf of Benjamin Critton Art Department's Sad People in Modernist Homes in Popular Films, the follow-up to the Los Angeles-based design studio's canonical Evil People in Modernist Homes in Popular Films zine.

Join us on the Jacinto lawn for a screening of 2001's The Anniversary Party, shot entirely in and around Richard Neutra's 1951 Schaarman House, located in the hills of Hollywood. This second entry in the publication series explores that namesake industry's occasional tendency towards housing unhappiness and melancholy inside of some of its most beloved vernacular architecture. Copies of the publication will be for sale, and plentiful popcorn will accompany the screening.
