Art school students, this is your film. The Weimar-era historical drama Bauhaus is based on the real-life creators of the art movement and modernist school of design that influenced everything from house furnishings to graphic design. The film centers on Lotte, a young woman studying furniture design at the famous Bauhaus Design Academy in the early 1920’s. The made-for-TV film is inspired by the real life of children’s furniture and toy designer Alma Siedhoff-Buscher. As to the fate of the Bauhaus Academy: the Nazi regime force the school to close in both Dessau and Berlin, decrying it as “bolshevik.” Many members went into exile, and its founder Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe were among those who settled in the United States.
