Pressing On: The Letterpress Film
This last weekend I attended the showing of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film at the Interrobang Film festival.
Pressing On: The Letterpress Film trailer
Here is the description of the film, directed by Erin Beckloff & Andrew Quinnat from the Interrobang website:
"The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived? Worlds of each character emerge as unusual narratives—joyful, mournful, reflective and visionary—are punctuated with on-screen visual candy, every shot meticulously composed. Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all."
