Run of press

Run of Press documents the process of newspaper printing at the largest printing facility in North America. The short film journeys alongside two-ton reams of paper as they glide and snake their way through the factory, eventually taking the form of printed stories. The result is an immersive exploration that both depicts and abstracts a space of labor redolent with implications for a troubled industry. Run of Press is a study of a post-industrial future, the disappearance of printed media, and its implications for the common factory worker.
