Designer movie

Gary Hustwit, the mastermind filmmaker behind Helvetica, has a new design-centric documentary slated for early 2009 called Objectified. The documentary will focus on industrial design and how we interact with mass-produced products and how they influence our lives. Heavy hitters such as IDEO, Marc Newson and Karim Rashid all show up in the film, but I am most excited to hear from design master Dieter Rams and whismical, smart Hella Jongerius. (Rams was behind much of the gorgeous design that came out of Braun from the 60s through the 90s and Jongerius makes some of my favorite industrial objects today.)
