Post-screening Q&A with Bruce Mau, Tuesday, June 14 at 7:30PM! Additional showtimes to be announced. 

“What makes MAU so lively and engaging is Bruce Mau himself and the style of the directors - a fun, kinetic style that is as outsized as its subject’s personality.” - Bobby LePire, Film Threat

"If you want to see a hopeful film that will make you rethink how you see the future, see MAU.” - Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

This playful portrait explores the life of design visionary Bruce Mau, from his creative journey to his ever-optimistic push to tackle the world’s biggest challenges - from branding to urban expansion - with transformational design. Over the span of his career, this creative dark horse has completed the transformation from world-class graphic designer to designer of the world - from advising global brands like Coca Cola and Disney, to rethinking a 1000-year plan for Mecca, Islam's holiest site; from working with the greatest living architects (Rem Koolhaas & Frank Gehry) on books and museums, to rebranding nations such as Guatemala and Denmark.
