This looks like an entertaining if esoteric documentary from director and producer Briar Levit, who is also a professional graphic designer. The film explores the world of graphic design production—the tools and methods that enable the craft, and how they underwent a dramatic transformation between the 1950s and 1990s. The trailer is basically a wonderful supercut of analog design production techniques; sort of the graphic equivalent of the magnetic “authenticity” of locally sourced goods, hand-made crafts, farm-to-table dining, organic produce, etc. The project was funded via Kickstarter, a sponsorship from Adobe Typekit, and a Faculty Enhancement Grant from Portland State University, where Levit works as an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design.
The movie also has a great title and poster:
