Make No Little Plans on WTTW tonight at 8:00

Judith Paine McBrien's new documentary, Make No Little Plans: Daniel Burnham and the American City, makes its television debut tonight, Thursday, December 17th, at 8:00 on WTTW, Channel 11. Insomniacs may also catch the film Saturday, December 19th, at 2:50 a.m. A DVD of the documentary is now available for purchase.

The film has taken some critical hits - probably nothing less than a Citizen Kane could fully capture the drama and contradictions of Uncle Dan's story - but it's an accomplished, compelling overview, with some stunning images, of Burnham's life and work.
