Final Portrait

Loading...
In the 1960s, renowned artist Alberto Giacometti requests for the writer James Lord to become the subject of one of his portraits. Although this seems like an innocent suggestion at first, Lord is quickly drawn into the strange web of Giacometti's beautiful, controversial and difficult world. The portrait sitting becomes so much more than what it seems at face value, and Lord's entire life sits on the precipice due to his association with the wildly talented artist.

Helvetica

Loading...
A documentary about a typeface? When said typeface is a ubiquitous piece of graphic design, yes. Helvetica--a sans-serif typeface developed in 1957 at the Haas Foundry in Munchenstein, Switzerland--has partisans and detractors, a great number of them graphic designers and theorists, who express their opinions on the famous font. It is seen as neutral and efficient, concise yet inexpressive, purposeful yet not caustic, utilitarian and unembellished, or as frustratingly familiar, perfectly subliminal, or as the typeface of socialism. From storefronts, street signs, product packaging, government forms, and advertisements, it is almost guaranteed that after viewing, you will be scanning the world examining Helvetica's continuing impact.

FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system."--Frontline web site.
