SPECIAL FEATURES -
This Oscar-winning documentary explores the life and work of architect Maya Lin, who, at the age of 21, designed the controversial Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. Her story reads something like a fairy tale for the aspiring architect and has become the stuff of legends ever since. In 1981, 1,421 designs were submitted to a panel of eight sculptors and architects. The winner of the competition would receive a prize of $50,000 and go on to design the memorial. After a full month of deliberation the jury unanimously selected Maya Lin, still an undergraduate at Yale University's School of Architecture.
"If you have been to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, you will want to see it. If you have not, it will make you want to go."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...a portrait worthy of the extraordinary woman it salutes."
- Mike Clark, USA Today
