Up There: The Dying Art Of Hand-Painted Advertisements

"Up There" documentary on sign painters

Hand-painted advertising is a dying craft, equal parts art and labor. Shot predominantly in Lower Manhattan in the Fall of 2009, ‘Up There’ is the emotional story of a few generations of men — some working on Stella Artois’ ‘The Ritual Project’ wall, others reflecting on the lives they’ve lived – who continue to keep this form alive despite changing economic conditions. – Mother

Directed by Malcolm Murray, produced by Mekanism, based on an original concept developed by Mother NYC.
