Proceed and Be Bold!
Tuesday, 20 March 2012 from 18:45 to 21:00 (GMT)
How far would you go for your one true love? Would you give up all of your earthly possessions, your job, and your family? What if your one true love was a printing press...
At 40 years of age, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Laura Zinger's film, Proceed and Be Bold! joins him for a titillating retelling of this story, while examining the pretensions and provisions of the art world.
The work of this self-proclaimed “Humble Negro Printer” raises emotionally-charged questions and reveals remarkable depth beneath the bold print. By learning the rules and then choosing to break them, Amos redefines what life (and letterpress printing) can be: exhilarating and subversive.
Join us for a showing of this film and Q&A session afterwards with the man himself.
