July 9 - "Objectified" screening

I know you guys have been waiting for this:

In conjunction with AIGA-LA:Special screening in Los Angeles of Objectified - A Documentary by Gary Hustwit.

Join director Gary Hustwit for a special one-night screening and discussion, presented in conjunction with AIGA Los Angeles and IDSA Los Angeles.

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.
