Objectified

The private screening of Gary Hustwit’s groundbreaking design documentary Objectified.

Gary Hustwit is an independent filmmaker based in New York and London. He has produced six feature documentaries, including I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, the award-winning film about the band Wilco; Moog, the documentary about electronic music pioneer Robert Moog; Drive Well, Sleep Carefully, a tour film about the band Death Cab for Cutie; and the well known Helvetica, released in 2007 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the typeface’s introduction in 1957.

Objectified is a feature-length documentary about the complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.

The film is currently touring at festivals and cinemas worldwide, screenings in NY, San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, London, Seattle from March to June 2010 are already sold out!
