CineMarfa presents a FREE screening of the acclaimed documentary SIGN PAINTERS (2013, 80 minutes, color) on Tuesday, October 15th at 7:30 pm at the Annex on Highland. About the film: There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all handlettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the technofueled promise of quicker and cheaper. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. In 2010 filmmakers Faythe Levine, coauthor of Handmade Nation, and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners, their timehonored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship.
The filmmakers will be present for a Q&A, and will be signing copies of the book companion to the film. With an introduction by Ed Ruscha, the book features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States. Don’t miss this FREE event at the Annex, on Highland avenue next door to the Marfa Book Company.
