Eileen Yaghoobian, 2009

Visiting Filmmakers

Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.

Wed, Sep 23, 2009 7 PM

One of the highlights of this year's South by Southwest Film Festival, Died Young, Stayed Pretty is an entertaining, rabble-rousing documentary that provides an in-depth survey of the graphic designers and artists responsible for the renaissance of indie-rock concert posters.

Fueled by the lingering energies of the punk movement and tying into larger DIY scenes, the poster designers have turned silkscreen advertisements for concerts by groups like Arcade Fire, Radiohead, and Sonic Youth into artistic creations in their own right. (95 mins., video)

GET HERE EARLY: Director Eileen Yaghoobian introduces the film, and local poster artists Mike Martin, Clint Reno, FarmBarn, and Will Ruoco will be on hand beginning at 6 pm to show off (and sell) their wares.

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
