THE HAPPY FILM
Design Schau! Film MCBW FORUM

As he embarks on the pursuit of his personal happiness, graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister transforms himself into a design object – in his own words, his hardest project so far.
Living in New York, the city of his dreams, Sagmeister designs album covers for iconic bands. And yet, he starts wondering if there isn't more to life than that. In a self-experiment, he wants to actively transform his own personality to become a better and happier person. In the process, he conducts controlled experiments using meditation, cognitive therapy and psychotropic drugs, but his day-to-day life gets in the way again and again.
