This is a preview of "Died Young, Stayed Pretty," a full-length documentary film that will be shown for the first time at SXSW this year. It is a raw and humorous look into the underground poster culture in North America. Judging by the trailer, this culture features many strange and creative individuals.

The film has already received great press acclaim for its close depiction of the subversive underground culture of rock poster design. It looks like Iranian-born Canadian filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian has created a pretty nuts film.

"Died Young, Stayed Pretty" had its premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival, and I will certainly be sure to see it when it makes its way across the ocean. Stats for Underground Art Documentaries Trending: Older & Mild
