“Proceed and Be Bold,” the fifth film in SUNY Oswego’s On Screen/In Person series, follows Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. as he foregoes a career in computers for the life of a poster and book artist, helping redefine ideas of politics, society and race.
Director Laura Zinger will appear Tuesday, March 27 as SUNY Oswego’s On Screen/In Person film series screens her documentary about a computer programmer turned poster and book artist.
“Proceed and Be Bold” will show at 7 p.m. at Oswego Cinema, 138 W. 2nd St., followed by questions and answers with Zinger, who profiles self-described “humble Negro printer” Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. in this unconventional story of a man and his letterpress.
Kennedy found himself deeply unsatisfied living the American middle-class dream, and, armed with his unique humor, radical philosophies and an outdated printing press, set out on a new path as an artist — one who redefines ideas of politics, society and race.
