"will trigger rushes of insight, empathy, and voyeuristic pleasure"– Wired

Super-fast-paced and breathtakingly honest, acclaimed graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister decides to turn himself into a design project. Can he redesign his personality to become a better person? He undergoes a series of self-experiments to test once and for all if it’s possible for a person to have a meaningful impact on their own happiness. (2016, 93 min, digital)
