Time & Date: 10.AM

Documentary and exhibition by Complete Control Films.

The Printer documentary looks at Field Printers in Youghal, Co. Cork, a unique printing house and shop dating back to 1850, now run by Bill Field, the last in the family line.

The exhibition meditates on the dying art of handcrafted setting and printing processes and showcases artefacts from the workshop as well as archive posters from the 1930s and 1940s. Poster highlights include the original premiere poster for Moby Dick and a town council poster urging Youghal natives to delay implementing the new regime of changing the clocks for Daylight Saving Time.
