A film by Poli Marichal, sponsored by Taller Boricua's Rafael Tufiño Printmakers Workshop to be screened at the Julia De Burgos Latino Center Theater.
Printmaking in the 21st Century is having a surprising revival brought about by creative and dedicated artists who are expanding the parameters of this ancient method of reproduction. The documentary Six Printmakers Breaking the Mold features artists Dirk Hagner, Michelle Rozic, John Greco, Kimiko Miyoshi, Dave Lefner and Camilla Taylor who are not only masterful but also passionate and eloquent exponents of the printmaking arts. Director Poli Marichal combined filmed interviews with footage of each artist working in his/her studio explaining their creative process and the methods and techniques they favor. This documentary was sponsored by Los Angeles Printmaking Society and the Pasadena Art Alliance.
