Designers in Film: Broad Underground Film Series
After studying with Bauhaus master László Moholy-Nagy at Chicago’s School of Design in Chicago, the Goldsholls made a series of innovative and socially engaged films in the 1950s and 1960s at their trailblazing firm Goldsholl Design Associates. The Goldsholls’ films collapsed boundaries between the avant-garde and the midcentury corporation as Chicago established itself as the Hollywood of industrial and educational filmmaking. Our program features a selection of the Goldsholls’ experimental and sponsored work crossing the domains of art, industry, design, and film.
Broad Underground is an ongoing collaboration between the MSU Broad, Film Studies program, and Department of English at MSU. This year’s partnering venue is The Robin Theatre in REO Town, Lansing. Special thanks to the Lansing Public Media Center for their continued support.
