“NEON" Feel the Glow

“NEON" Feel the Glow (2015) documents the imaginative mystery and handmade craft of the neon sign, and neon’s mythic status in 20th century American life. Written and directed by award-winning Australian filmmaker Lawrence Johnston, NEON celebrates the beauty, color and vibrant history of this beloved form of advertising from an international perspective as we face a world where it will soon be lost and superseded by L.E.D. signage. The craft and construction of this 100-year-old medium has changed very little, making neon one the greenest forms of light ever produced, and an amazing and enduring force of color and beauty in the visual landscapes of our lives. Neon lovers, designers, and architects: don't miss this one.

High quality DCP (Digital Cinema Print) screening.
