Endless Letterpress Documentary Film Screening

Saturday March 23rd, 2 pm to 5 pm

2 pm Letterpress Printing, Typecasting on Linotype & Ludlow Machines & Reception
3 pm Film Screening


Facing the deterioration of the machines and the advance
of new technologies in Argentina, 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.
