Gary Hustwit speaks to Dezeen in a live Screentime conversation as part of Virtual Design Festival's collaboration with the filmmaker which also includes a free screening of his documentary about Dieter Rams plus exclusive photos of the German designer taken during filming.
Hustwit is a New York-based photographer and filmmaker. Today, he is offering Dezeen readers a free screening of his documentary about Dieter Rams, and is also sharing photos he took of the influential German designer during the film's production.
The 70-minute documentary, called Rams, is available on Hustwit's website today and throughout the weekend as part of VDF's collaboration with the director.
Released in 2018, Rams is the first full-length film about Rams, whose work for German electronics brand Braun has been hugely influential.
Previous design-related films by Hustwit include 2007's Helvetica, which explores the legacy of the iconic typeface; 2009's Objectified, which looks at people's relationships with objects; and Urbanized, which examines architecture and urbanism.
The interview is part of our VDF Screentime series, a series of live interviews which has featured trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, The World Around curator Beatrice Galilee, Kanye West collaborator Dong-Ping Wong, and British-Israeli architect Ron Arad.
Virtual Design Festival is the world's first online design festival, taking place from 15 April to 30 June. For more information, or to be added to the mailing list, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
