Helvetica, a documentary film by Gary Hustwit, is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

Ditto with everyone else. I love words like Kerning, Type, Font! When is the next showing? Who has a spare ticket?


I can't believe there's only one showing. In San Francisco. During Design Week. What the hell?!?


From the website:

Landmark Embarcadero Theaters, 7pm & 10pm. Q&A with Gary Hustwit. SOLD OUT. There may be stand-by tickets available at the door for both screenings, arrive early... no guarantees.

I'm sure it will come back when it gets a theatrical release.

They are doing screenings at festivals and special events this year.
Sign up for their email list (and add them on myspace) to get updates.

It also lists Berkeley under coming soon.


He said they are doing events though September when there will be a theatrical release in a few cities.

It will be out on DVD on Oct. 6th.
