Event Description

Join us for the Florida Premiere of LOS ULTIMOS: Endless Letterpress on the big screen in the Jaffe Book Arts Gallery!

Followed by a discussion with Director Pablo Pivetta and printing in the JCBA Print Shop!

2019 • Documentary • Unrated • 70 minutes • Pensilvania Films, Argentina • In Spanish with English subtitles.

Facing the deterioration of machines and the advance of new technologies, traditional printers in Argentina 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: printing from handset type. But it will be difficult for them to learn the trade since it has always been passed down from master to apprentice––and these young people are outsiders. The last graphic mechanic of the country will be in charge of teaching them. Will this ancient handcraft withstand the passage of time?
