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 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.

Tickets: $5 + fees

This film screening is part of the 3rd Biennial Lawrence Print Week, a collaboration with the Lawrence Arts Center, Wonder Fair, the University of Kansas Printmaking Department, and the Spencer Museum of Art.
