Watch this space for changes. A new look will soon replace the old. All of the old information will be available but in a different format that we hope will make it easier to find what you want.

In addition to the films incorporated into the exhibit, Grigor is producing a new documentary on Lautner, to be screened during the exhibition. Read about it here.
