Institute of Contemporary Arts:Died Young Stayed Pretty

This smart and rambling documentary delves into the booming underground network of music gig poster artists in the US, skipping through a plethora of artistic styles and promoting Sonic Youth and Radiohead among dozens more. The life of the poster artist is impressively – and inspirationally – documented by debut director Eileen Yaghoobian, with a top-notch indie soundtrack.

Director Eileen Yaghoobian joins us on Friday 9 October at 6.30pm for a Q&A session.
