LOGLINE

The Price of Desire, Eileen Gray, E-1027, Le CorbusierA triangular tale of insidious chauvinism, The Price of Desire explores how the remarkable Irish designer and architect, Eileen Gray’s relationships with Le Corbusier and his promoter Jean Badovici cost her the right to be credited for one of the most influential pieces of 20th century modern architecture.

SYNOPSIS

The Price Of Desire is the controversial story of how the bisexual Irish artist’s Eileen Gray’s influential contribution to 20th century architecture and design was almost wiped from history by the egotistical ‘Father of Modernism’, Le Corbusier. The film unfolds how her relationship with philanderer Jean Badovici, editor of influential L’Architecture Vivante, and the man who made Le Corbusier famous, further fuelled the rift between the two architects, and consigned her legacy to a century of neglect and long- overdue recognition.

Set substantially on the Côte d’Azur in and around her most abiding work, the villa e1027, The Price of Desire explores the events surrounding Le Corbusier’s eventual erasure of both Gray’s physical ownership of the property as well as her intellectual property right to be recognised as the architect of her work.

A triangular tale of insidious chauvinism, The Price of Desire resonates as a universal female experience while cinematically evoking the essential aesthetic of Eileen Gray.
