This idiosyncratic gem tells the story of the unstoppable rise of the skyscrapers. Starting in 1869 in New York and Chicago, elevators, steel, and electricity came together in a frenzy of tall and taller buildings. Tall traces the experiments of the early skyscraper architects, especially Chicago’s Louis Sullivan (mentor of Frank Lloyd Wright), who pioneered a new skyscraper form, and the fierce rivals led by Daniel Burnham who competed with him for favor, money, and power. Tall pits the struggle for artistic integrity against the demands of fashion and the client’s bottom line, and documents the epic showdown between Sullivan and Burnham. The outcome changed the future, shaping the modern skyline throughout the world. (2006, 82 min, digital)
