Helvetica & Us Now: Films for the holiday?

Posted on May 19, 2009 by


This week, many of us have some extra time off (Ascension day in most of Europe on Thursday), so why not spend some time watching free movies? No, I did not mean downloading Star Trek on PirateBay or browsing for free porn, why not watch something you can learn something from – which is free online?e

Us Now New technologies and a closely related culture of collaboration present radical new models of social organisation. This project brings together leading practitioners and thinkers in this field and asks them to determine the opportunity for government.

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which recently celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. It is now available to stream online at Norwegian broadcaster NRKs website.
