'The Happy Film'

When: Thu., July 20, 7 p.m. 2017

“This film started as a graphic design project six years ago, and, somehow, it all became about me,” muses Stefan Sagmeister in a trailer for the 2016 documentary The Happy Film. The movie follows the Grammy Award-winning Austrian designer, who has created album covers for the likes of Jay-Z and the Rolling Stones, on an unconventional journey: Through experiments in meditation, therapy and drugs, the artist aims to become a better, more fulfilled person. Professional association for design AIGA Vermont presents a screening of the film that, as the Hollywood Reporter puts it, “makes clear that Sagmeister is happiest when he’s practicing his craft.”

Price: $5-10.
