Mau is the first-ever, feature-length documentary about the design visionary Bruce Mau. The film explores the untold story of his unlikely rise in the creative world, and ever-optimistic push to expand the boundaries of design. We tell the story of his incredible career – from Mecca to MOMA, from Guatemala to Coca Cola – and his most important project yet: his own life.
The AGH is proud to co-present this film at the Playhouse Cinema through a guest introduction from Hamilton Artist, Architect and Designer Petra Matar!
