Well, hopefully near you. “Linotype: The Film” is a feature-length documentary about the Linotype type casting machine.
The film tells the charming and emotional story of the people connected to the Linotype and how it impacted the world – revolutionizing printing and society.
It also seeks to answer some important questions like: So what place does the Linotype have in our age of new technology? Should the machine be shoved into a museum and left to rust? Why should anyone care about typography or the technology of communication?
“Linotype: The Film” premiered in New York City earlier this month and is set to appear in these locations next:
