  • Sign Painters - the Movie

    Sign Painters – the movie / 19 Sep

    Sign Painters - the Movie

    Sign Painters – the movie

    There was a time when storefronts, murals, and billboards were all hand lettered 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 and Sam Macon began documenting these dedicated practitioners.

    Live at The Distillery, we proudly present the Australian preview of Sign Painters – the documentary film. With an intro of Sydney’s sign painting heritage, a live demo, and popcorn all night, it promises to be a fun night out. SOLD OUT.

    $15 – 6:30pm, Thursday, 19 September 2013.
