The Sarasota Architectural Foundation will present “Regular or Super: Views on Mies van der Rohe” from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Burn Court Cinema, 506 Burns Lane, Sarasota.

The movie will be introduced by Jean Renoux. It is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.

The film focuses on the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), one of the 20th century’s most influential architects. It combines images of his classic buildings with observations from architecture’s superstars, including Rem Koolhaas, plus comments from his biographer and family. Mies’ entire body of work (more than 70 buildings) and modernist and minimalist style reflect his motto that “less is more.”

Tickets are $15; $10 for SAF members. Info:
