Grammy award winner brings movie premiere to Sheffield Hallam

8th June 2017

Grammy-award winning film-maker Stefan Sagmeister is to premiere his new film Happy at Sheffield Hallam University this week.

The UK premiere will take place on 10 June and has been arranged by Made North in association with the University's Sheffield Institute of Arts (SIA), with the screen taking place at the Pennine Lecture Theatre. Stefan Sagmeister is a New York-based graphic designer and video-maker who has designed album covers for musical artists including Lou Reed, The Rolling Stones, and Jay Z, winning a Grammy award in 2005 for art directing 'Once in a Lifetime' by Talking Heads. Stefan's new film, Happy, is a feature-length documentary in which Stefan undergoes a series of self-experiments outlined by popular psychology to test once and for all if it's possible for a person to have a meaningful impact on their own happiness. Stefan will be in attendance at the screening in Sheffield and will take part in a Q&A session after the film is shown. Claire Lockwood, head of the University's art and design department, said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to screen the UK premiere of Stefan's film. This is part of a really exciting collaboration with Made North, and further enhances Sheffield's reputation for the arts. "SIA is a truly international institute and we are proud about ensuring all our students have the opportunity to see, first-hand, art across a range of different styles and from a wealth of different countries across the world." Tickets for the screening can be purchased via Eventbrite.
