“Sign Painters, which has been put together with equal parts affection and skill by directors Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, is fresh and passionate and unexpected.”
– Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
AGDA Tasmania proudly presents Sign Painters The Movie
Reconnect with handmade typography through this beautiful and fascinating award winning documentary. Faythe Levine and Sam Macon’s exploration of the last of America’s Sign Painters is magnificently shot and made with a rare love and passion for their subject.
Join AGDATas in re-discovering this dying art form as we look at the origins typography and why faster and cheaper isn’t always better. Is there a future for hand crafted type? Find out for yourself.
We welcome you to roll up early and join us for a chat, drink and something to eat before the show.
“A cautionary tale about the head-long rush into a technology-driven time and a meditation on what’s lost along the way. It is a reminder to look around and recognize the physical history in our presence every day.”
– Mary Louise Schumacher, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
