UP THERE, an absolutely beautiful documentary about practitioners of hand-painted outdoor signage, from “Jon” on Vimeo. More about the project at uptherefilm.com. Thanks to Post Family for the heads-up (pun, although convenient, not intended).
Reminds me how much I enjoyed James Rosenquist’s memoir “Painting Below Zero” — dig that too if you enjoy the movie above and like to read. Dwight Garner (New York Times) says “it’s a ruddy and humble book, lighted from within by the author’s plainspoken, blue-collar charm.” Here’s his full review, and you can read an excerpt of the book here on the publisher’s site.
