OBJECTIFIED (2009), 75 mins Gary Hustwit, director

From the director of “Helvetica” comes the 2nd documentary in a film trilogy on design. Objectified offers a fascinating look at industrial products and design, the designers and their responsibility in creating them, and our relationship with those objects.

“The term objectified has two meanings. One is ‘to be treated with the status of a mere object.’ But the other is ‘something abstract expressed in a concrete form,’ as in the way a sculpture objectifies an artist’s thoughts. It’s the act of transforming creative thought into a tangible object, which is what designers in this film do every day. But maybe there’s a third meaning to this title, regarding the ways these objects are affecting us and our environment. Have we all become objectified?”

-gary hustwit (from his “objectified’ blog)
