Last night we all headed to the Roxy Bar and Screen on Borough High Street to see the UK premiere of the 'Sign Painters' movie directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon.
The film documents the individual stories of various practioners, most of whom are fantastically watchable characters for one reason or another. A larger narrative is also uncovered about this artform and its fate over time, most notably the near extinction of traditional methods due to the developments in technology (stickers, vinyls etc...) and what is lost as a result.
Here are a few of our favourite quotes from the film;
"Drum-machines have no soul"
"On my gravestone it's going to say, he died for greater opacity"
"I-O-A-F-S" (It's only a fucking sign!)"
Check out the trailer above and if you happen to be in any of the places that are screening the film then we urge you to get tickets.
