From the Back Row Films Web site:
The powerful, Emmy-nominated documentary ART & COPY will introduce you to the inspiring cultural visionaries who revolutionized advertising during the industry’s golden age in the 1960’s by creating slogans to live by and ads we all remember. You may not have heard of them, but these pop pioneers have changed the way we eat, work, shop, and communicate – often in ways we don’t even realize. From the introduction of the Volkswagen to America to the triumph of Apple Computers, ART & COPY explores the most successful and influential advertising campaigns of the 20th century, introduces the innovative minds that launched them, and potently demonstrates that creativity can solve anything.
After the film, local advertising professionals will discuss how the industry works to grab the attention of millions and truly move them.
