August 25, 2009 7:00pm Died Young, Stayed Pretty. by filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian “Died Young, Stayed Pretty” (http://www.diedyoungstayedpretty.com/) is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America’s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The film gives us intimate look at some of the giants of this modern subculture.

  • Directly after the film, Eileen and the following panel of local rock poster designers will field questions from the audience, led by moderator, Tim DuRoche: Art Chantry, Dan Stiles, Guy Burwell, Mike King and Lloyd Winter
