“Your film made me physically ill”
Those might not be the words you’d like to hear someone say after the New York premiere of your film. But in the case of Objectified, I don’t mind… in fact I think it’s a good thing. [Read Linda Tischler’s review of the event for Fast Company for an explanation.]
Thanks to everyone who came to the New York events. And special thanks to Dan Formosa, Davin Stowell, Paola Antonelli, Luke Geissbuhler, and Karim Rashid for participating in the post-screening question and answer sessions, which I really enjoyed. It’s fascinating to see the way the film is affecting people, and the questions it brings up. Because I believe that documentary film is not about giving viewers answers; it’s about getting them to ask more questions about themselves and their relationship to the subject matter.

And another special thanks to everyone at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, where we had another fun, jam-packed screening last weekend. The folks in Durham came out in force! And it’s always great to show your film to other filmmakers, and to see what’s going on in the documentary world at the moment. And to get smashed at my new favorite bar in Durham, the Pinhook.
Up next, our sold-out premiere event in London this Thursday, with Jony Ive, Marc Newson, and Alice Rawsthorn in attendance. See you soon, Londoners.
