MFA Print Media Hosts Endless Letterpress: Film Screening and Letterpress Demo
March 04, 2019
The MFA in Print Media is thrilled to host a film screening of Endless Letterpress, a film by Pablo Pivetta and Nicolas Rodriguez Fuchs. March 18 at 5:30pm in PNCA's Mediatheque.
“Facing the deterioration of the machines and the advance of new technologies, the printing presses are closing their workshops. At the same time, a group of young people rediscovers the greatest technical innovation in the history of the written word: the typesetting printing. But it will be difficult for them to learn the trade since it has always been passed down from master to apprentice – and they are outsiders. The last graphic mechanic of the country will be in charge of teaching them so that this ancient technique can withstand the passage of time.”
The film will be accompanied by a Q&A with the directors as well as a hands-on letterpress demo with PNCA faculty member Rory Sparks, whose work as a book binder and printmaker challenges and expands the definition of publication, archive, and exhibition.
Free and open to the public!
