NEUTRA IN ROATAN - Documentary Film
Architect Dion Neutra has led the Neutra firm for the last half of its illustrious nine decades of service. Dion's work and unique experience serve to further secure the Neutra legacy; his father Richard Neutra is revered as one of the most influential architects of our time.
Dion’s son, Nick Neutra, is in the process of building a multi-structure complex on the Honduran island of Roatan. Dion and Nick formed the team to conceptualize the project starting in 2007. This cooperative effort represents a milestone in a tradition of creative expression.
The feature-length documentary will chronicle this recent chapter in the Neutra story: the tenth island project of the Neutra practice. In addition, Dion is concurrently producing a book, The Island Projects of the Neutra Practice.
The film will explore three generations of father-son relationships, going back to the first Neutra island project, The Windshield House, Fisher’s Island, in 1936, and culminating with the Roatan project. The narrative will focus on the universal challenges and rewards of the creative process.
We successfully completed the short film Neutra In Roatan in April 2017 and had our Southern California premiere at the American Documentary Film Festival in Palm Springs California. We are now gearing up for the next phase of production of the feature length documentary and we need your support to make it a reality.
