Gab Presents | The Happy Film
Mon 20 February 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
For our next Gab we're excited to bring a special screening of The Happy Film by designer Stefan Sagmeister to Glasgow.
MAKE A DONATION - MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY
For this event we're asking that everyone who takes a ticket makes a donation which will go to Loaves and Fishes, a Glasgow charity that helps people in need by providing a sit down meal, food parcels, clothes and toiletries.
Jamhot will be covering the cost of the screening - all money raised from the event will go to the charity. Please note that a small booking fee will be added to your order by Eventbrite to cover the cost of processing the donations through their platform. Select a pre set £10 ticket or chose your own preferred donation level.
THE HAPPY FILM
Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister is doing well. He lives in New York, the city of his dreams, and he has success in his work, designing album covers for the Rolling Stones, Jay-Z and the Talking Heads. But in the back of his mind he suspects there must be something more. He decides to turn himself into a design project. Can he re- design his personality to become a better person? Is it possible to train his mind to get happier? He pursues 3 controlled experiments of meditation, therapy, and drugs, grading himself along the way. But real life creeps in and confounds the process: art, sex, love, and death prove impossible to disentangle. His unique designs and painfully personal experiences mark a journey that travels closer to himself than ever intended.
