Kick off the Memorial Day Weekend with THE BIFF REEL Friends Society special screening of The Happy Film with artist and co-director Stefan Sagmeister, co-director Ben Nabors and Dr. Sheenah Hankin in attendance.

Austrian designer Stefan Sagmeister is doing well. He lives in New York, the city of his dreams, and he has success in his work, designing album covers for the Rolling Stones, Jay-Z and the Talking Heads. But in the back of his mind he suspects there must be something more. He decides to turn himself into a design project. Can he redesign his personality to become a better person? Is it possible to train his mind to get happier? He pursues three controlled experiments of meditation, therapy, and drugs, grading himself along the way. But real life creeps in and confounds the process: art, sex, love, and death prove impossible to disentangle. His unique designs and painfully personal experiences mark a journey that travels closer to himself than ever intended.

A fun and interactive panel discussion will follow the screening with Sagmeister, Nabors and Dr. Hankin. This is an event not to miss!

This event is generously sponsored by The Annie Selke Companies.

Join BIFF for a special private "After Party" event with Sagmeister, Nabors and Dr. Hankin immediately after the Mahaiwe film screening & panel discussion. Tickets for the "After Party" are $30 ~ only available through the BIFF office at 413-528-8030!
