Tribeca 2013: 15 Films We Can’t Wait to See

“Out of Print”

Vivienne Roumani examines the effect of new technology on the publishing industry, posing the question: What will become of us in a world without books?

For the bespectacled subset of the population and those who are prone to carrying tote bags with Hermann Melville’s face printed on them, this film will bring all manner of apocalyptic thrills. It’s possible, though, that Roumani’s project has a higher purpose, examining the effect that electronic publishing has had on literacy and the way knowledge is disseminated, not just among the literati, but throughout society.

…the much anticipated  documentary Out of Print … The film offers an astute look at the journey from the written word of books through the digital information age. Jeff Bezos, Ray Bradbury, Scott Turow, Jeffrey Toobin, all offer their thoughts on this “evolution.”

New film about the future of the book debuts at Tribeca film festival.

I suppose it was only a matter of time, but I was still surprised to see an announcement of a documentary film debuting a the Tribeca Film Festival, called Out of Print.

This film, directed by Vivienne Roumani, an independent producer/director based in New York City, explores the future of the book. Roumani, a former librarian has assembled an impressive group of interviews, including the late Ray Bradbury to consider the question of what will happen to the book.
