Handmade Nation screens at MICA Feb 25
Holy cow! Lucky You, Baltimore!!! A screening of Handmade Nation is being held at Maryland Institute College of Art next week! The director of the Indie Documentary about DIY Businesses, Faythe Levine, will be presenting the film in person - free of cost.
In 2006, Levine traveled to 15 cities & Interviewed 80 artists & designers to capture the virtually tight-knit community that exists through Web sites, blogs & online stores & connects to the greater public through independent boutiques, galleries & craft fairs. Interviews were also conducted in artists' studios & homes. If that doesn't interest you enough, it should be noted that Handmade Nation might just have the best animated opening title sequence of all time.
