My wife and I caught Visual Acoustics on Netflix the other day. It's a documentary about Julius Shulman, who you might not know by name, but if you like mid-century modernism then you certainly know his photographs. It's a film that worth checking out. Towards the beginning of the film they give a quick history of modernism - all the names, who influenced who, what schools they came out of, what countries they came from, etc. While the entire film was a lesson in mid-century modernism, that section was some of the best Cliffs Notes I've ever seen.
