Q & A with Sean McLachlan, Letter Peddle Press and the film-makers
Facing the deterioration of the machines and the advance of new technologies, 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.
