3:00PM - 5:00 PM
Join the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg for a screening of Pressing On: The Letterpress Film, followed by a Q&A with co-director and writer Erin Beckloff. 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?
