Objectified

Finally!!! I’ve been waiting for this film to screen in PGH since it premiered at SXSW in March. Directed by Gary Hustwit (who also gave us the cult hit “Helvetica”), Objectified is a must see film for anyone in the product design or related fields. If you are an industrial designer you have a duty to see this film. It is about you! The documentary is a Who’s Who of industrial design superstars ranging from Jonathon Ive to Karim Rashid to IDEO’s Tim Brown.

From the Objectified website: “Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our 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.”

Objectified will be showing at The Harris Theater downtown from Sunday 7/19 through Thursday 7/23. Sunday’s screening are at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. All other screenings start at 7:30 pm with an additional 5:30 pm show on Thursday. On July 23 tix will only be $5 for AIGA and IDSA members, with a reception following the 7:30 film at Mark’s Grille.
