Will this ancient handcraft withstand the passage of time?
As part of a series of screenings for next April, we're happy to announce our second screening at OFFF Barcelona 2019! This will be a special one as
it represents a documentary about the greatest technical innovation in the history of the written word: the typesetting printing.
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. Will this ancient technique withstand the passage of time?
Watch the trailer below and make sure not to miss this storytelling beauty next April! More info on date and time coming soon!
