Description
dir. Lawrence Johnston
In a world where neon will soon be superseded by LEDs, Neon celebrates the beauty, color, and vibrant history of the neon sign from an international perspective.

Neon signage is more than a hundred years old, and the craft and construction behind it has changed very little; it is one of the greenest forms of light ever produced and an amazing and enduring source of color and brilliance in the visual landscape. (2016, 83 min, digital)
