This month's film: Helvetica (2007)
We use it every day on our computers, we see it on street signs — and we take it for granted. Now, Gary Hustwit's unique documentary introduces us to Helvetica, a font whose readability has made it the most popular in the world. Interviews with designers and artists offer insight into the development, use and universal acceptance of Helvetica as the typeface of choice for everything from writing letters to creating corporate logos.

Each month at this intimate, informal gathering at the hive, we show a film with a message — sometimes entertaining, sometimes political, always inspiring, engaging and thought provoking.
We start the evening with a kind of bring-your-own happy hour and then screen the film around 7PM. We'll have healthy, organic popcorn. Please bring something to drink and other food to share if you like.
Projector generously provided by Fovea.
