Since 2007, North Carolina Modernist Houses (formerly Triangle Modernist Houses) has advocated for the preservation of the state's Modernist residential architecture, establishing the largest open digital archive of the provocative school of design and raising public awareness about its wonders and plight. They open a new series of hard-to-find films with this double feature. Futuro: A New Stance for Tomorrow (1998) documents the rise and fall of a flying saucer-like plastic house that designers wanted to mass-produce. People in Glass Houses: The Legacy of Joseph Eichler (2012) profiles the California architect who applied Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe's ideas to the single-family tract housing Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak grew up in. The Raleigh Grande's 50-foot screen delivers a lot more awe than your television or tablet can accommodate. —Chris Vitiello
