Upcoming films - "If..." June 29th & "Objectified" July 2nd

If..., film @ Kriterion, Monday June 29th, 22.00, € 6,50, UK film. (from Juli 2 - August 26 the Kriterion will play only documentaries - also something to look forward to on rainy days.)

The last film of Krieterion's Modern Classic month - films from the late 60s. "If..." is a film about a crazy group of boys at a public school in England in the early 60s. Winner of the Grand prix Cannes (1969).

Why go? keep up with the classics

Objectified, film @ Smart Project Space, Arie Biemondstraat 105-113, Thursday, July 2nd, two showings 19.00 & 21.30, €12. Post-film Q&A with director Gary Hustwit after each screening.

"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.

Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential product designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?" - from objectifiedfilm.com

Why go? an intimate discussion with the director after each filming, only being shown in special screenings
