Documentary

We see them almost every day without a second thought. Weathered by time, distinct characteristics shining through, hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150 year-old history. What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized underground trade, a unique craft struggling with technological advances. Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country, from the old guard to the up-and-comers. Sign Painters celebrates those keeping the tradition intact with a bespoke approach and appreciation for a balance between art and information.
