Typeface, a documentary film
TypeCulture and AIGA Maine present the Maine premiere of Typeface, a documentary from Kartemquin Films.

Director Justine Nagan investigates how the value and purpose of older analog media have changed as our society has transitioned into a digital age in Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams, Terra Incognita, At the Death House Door) latest documentary on art in society.

In a time when people can carry computers in their pockets and watch TV while walking down the street, Typeface dares to explore the twilight of an analog craft that is freshly inspiring artists in a digital age. The Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, WI personifies cultural preservation, rural re-birth and the lineage of American graphic design. At Hamilton, international artisans meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique. But the Museums days are numbered. What is the responsibility of artists and historians to preserve a dying craft? How can rural towns survive in a shifting industrial marketplace where big-box retailers are king?
