Directed by Niels Bolbrinker and Thomas Tielsch (Germany, 2019, 95 min.). Digital. German, English, and Spanish with English subtitles.

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walter Gropius’s Bauhaus school (1919–2019) with this lively and wide-ranging exploration of the movement that united modern design, art, architecture, and the performing arts with communal social living to form an academic discipline and utopian way of life.

 Combining free imagination and play with strict structure, the Bauhaus counted among its members Anni Albers, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, and Oskar Schlemmer.

 The most comprehensive film on its subject to date, Bauhaus Spirit explores the influential 20th-century movement’s history, legacy, and continued relevance in an age when footprint, function, and environmental sustainability have taken on new urgency.

Filmgoers who would like to learn more about the Bauhaus movement are encouraged to check out the MFA’s course offerings on the subject, and to visit the exhibition "Radical Geometries: Bauhaus Prints, 1919–33," currently on view.
