Citizen Architect

I just heard on WNYC that director Sam Wainwright will take questions following a screening of his documentary on Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio called the Citizen Architect at the beautiful Cooper-Hewitt.

Blurb about the film from the Leonard Lopate Show Page:

"Hale County, Alabama is home to some of the most impoverished communities in the United States of America. It is also home to Auburn University’s Rural Studio, one of the most prolific and inspirational design-build outreach programs ever established. Citizen Architect is a documentary film chronicling the late Samuel Mockbee, artist, architect, educator and founder of the Rural Studio with never-before-seen interviews with Mockbee himself."

There should be a stream of the interview on the WNYC  page.
