’Pressing On: The Letterpress Film’, is the 4th film to be shown in Scott Hall Mills film series, which sets out to bring people together and inspire through creativity.
This screening is in collaboration with the Scalarama film festival, a celebration of cinema, for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, taking place every September.
‘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 in a digital age?’
‘Worlds of each character emerge as unusual narratives—joyful, mournful, reflective and visionary—are punctuated with on-screen visual poetry, 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!’
We’re showing the film at Scott Hall Mills on Thursday 13th September at 7:30pm (arrival from 6.30pm). We’ll run a friendly bar and provide some delicious FREE POPCORN.
The event is open to all so please invite anyone who might be interested but please remember to RSVP via the Eventbrite page, as admittance is guest list only.
Unfortunately Scott Hall Mills is not fully accessible, the event space is located on the 2nd floor and we do not have a lift. Any questions about this event please email organisers
