• “Typeface”
  • Along with Hoop Dreams director Steve James‘s No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson, the Gene Siskel Film Center screens two more films from local documentary powerhouse Kartemquin Films this week in its “Stranger than Fiction” series.

    Justine Nagan, who was named Kartemquin’s executive director last year, directs Typeface—a documentary about Two Rivers, Wisconsin’s Hamilton Wood Type Museum, the endangered art of letterpress typography, and the resurgence of craft printing—which has its Chicago premiere in a week long run starting Friday 1/29.
