SYNOPSIS

The legendary production designer Ken Adam, aged 93, cigar in hand, brandishes his Flo-Master one last time to conjure up the year 1962 and the iconic War Room he created alongside Stanley Kubrick in Dr Strangelove.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

This is The War Room! was inspired by the fact that in 2001 I worked as a location scout for Sir Ken Adam’s last film in Berlin. I literally stood behind him and watched the great illusionist of production design create his powerful drawings. I was able to see how Adam lets the spatial ideas flow as fast as his imagination and hands allow. The goal of this film is to show the magical artistic process of creating cinematic space.
