Helvetica: Full Film on Google Video (Removed)

dvd.mini.jpgI've just learned that the full 1:21:44 documentary Film Helvetica (which I recommended in a previous post) is currently was available to watch on Google Video.

I had a look at the comments, and saw someone listed as "gary hustwit" who may (or may not) be the filmmaker:

"yes the filmmakers should be making money... this is an illegal upload and will be deleted soon. if you'd like to support the film, go to http://www.helveticafilm.com"

This video may indeed be an illegal upload, and might disappear soon. I'd momentarily embedded the video here, but decided to remove it, as it isn't clear if the film was legally posted. At least it can't be downloaded.

My advice is to rent or buy the film, see it as intended and support the filmmaker, Gary Hustwit, for his hard work. Helvetica is available at Netflix or Amazon and directly from the Helvetica Shop.

(Thanks to Russell Beattie for the tip.)

UPDATE 2008-01-26: This video has now been removed from Google Video.
