Art & Copy

Friday, August 21 - Thursday, August 27, 2009

An insider’s look at the enormously influential yet little-known world of advertising, Doug Pray’s (Scratch, IFC Center hit Surfwise) latest offers a first-hand account of the revolution in ad-making that started in the early 60s, straight from some of the legends of the business — the real life Mad Men. From “think small” to “I (heart) NY,” from “Where’s the beef?” to “Just do it,” the film revisits iconic campaigns that synthesized art and commerce, captured the zeitgeist and became an integral part of American culture.

IFC Center does not generally provide advisories about subject matter or potentially triggering content in films, as sensitivities vary from person to person. In addition to the synopses, trailers and other links on our website, further information about content and age-appropriateness for specific films can be found on Common Sense Media, IMDb and as well as through general internet searches.
