100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright -- Long before she became a woman behind the camera, Beverly Willis, born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1928, grew up playing among the oil derricks and eventually was drawn into the world of building. After designing the San Francisco Ballet Building, and founding the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation in 2002, Willis became a filmmaker. Throughout her fifty-five-year career, Willis learned of the lack of documentation of women architects and designers worked with Frank Lloyd Wright during his career. In her documentary '100 Women Architects in the studio of Frank Lloyd Wright', Willis reveals how six women in their own 'right', went on to make valuable contributions to American architecture.
