Urbanized: A Documentary Film

If you read my, albeit disjointed, post last week about the massive migration of our populations to urban areas, and you have an interest in this topic, then I encourage you to check out Gary Hustwit’s latest project, Urbanized.

Hustwit is the guy responsible for, Helvetica, a documentary which explored the role of the typeface in our society as well as Objectified, which looked at manufactured objects and our relationship to them.  His third film, in what he calls his “design trilogy” acknowledges how critical the design decisions surrounding our world’s cities will be over the next 20 years.  The film will look at the challenges faced by arcitects, designers, urban planners, and policy makers, striving to highlight the key strategies that will ensure future prosperity (and I’m guessing sustainability).

Anyway, it looks like it’ll be a great film.  If you’re interested in supporting this completely independent project, head on over to Gary’s Kickstarter page and throw him a few chucks, or just learn a little more about the film.
