Louis Kahn was one of the 20th century's heavy hitters in the field of architecture, designing monumental yet light-filled buildings around the world. But when he died of a heart attack in a bathroom in Pennsylvania Station in New York City in 1974, his body couldn't be identified for three days. Filmmaker Nathaniel Kahn views his father's life and career through the lens of his odd ending in the Oscar-nominated documentary My Architect: A Son's Journey (2003). Presented by the Cinema, Inc. film series, which has been showing classic and foreign films in Raleigh for nearly a half-century, the film is a personal quest into a famous and nomadic father through interviews with family members and renowned architects such as Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson and I.M. Pei. Nathaniel also tours his camera through some of Louis' greatest buildings, including his masterwork, the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A $10 ticket is good for the remaining five films in the series. —Chris Vitiello
