NEW VIEWS Documentaries & Dialogue – “Print the Legend”

NEW VIEWS Documentaries & Dialogue

Documentary filmmaking plays an important role in the sharing of ideas, and as an art form gives voice to issues of critical importance.  The Aspen Institute Arts Program and Aspen Film bring to the Roaring Fork Valley NEW VIEWS Documentaries & Dialogue, a series featuring critically acclaimed documentaries and conversations with special guests. NEW VIEWS is generously sponsored by Leonard Lauder, and Jane and Michael Eisner.

 

“A technology that promises (some would say threatens) to permanently transform our lives… “Print the Legend” gives us remarkable access to the major players in the highly competitive, ingenious industry of 3D printing.” – Variety

3D printing is changing the world — from printing guns and human organs to dismantling the world’s industrial infrastructure by enabling home manufacturing. It’s “the next Industrial Revolution.” For the first time in history, the stories of the human beings building an industry have been filmed. The result: this absorbing award winner, which follows the people racing to bring 3D printing to our desktops and into our lives. For the winners, there are fortunes — and history — to be made. “Print the Legend” is both the definitive 3D Printing Documentary — capturing a technology in the midst of its “Macintosh Moment” — and a compelling tale about what it takes to live the American Dream in any field. From the award-winning team whose members produced “Freakonomics” (New Views 2010), “Make Believe” (Filmfest 2010, and the Oscar-winner Undefeated (Filmfest 2011). (Directed by Luis Lopez + J. Clay Tweel, USA, 100 min.)

Producer Chad Troutwine in post screening conversation.  In collaboration with the Aspen Action Forum.
