Indirect film is a much more complicated method.
The films are gelatin based and can be used for solvent based inks only (plastisol is OK).
You expose, develop, and and wash the film on its carrier, and then stick it on the screen.

Capillary film is not the same as indirect film.
It is simply dried emulsion on a carrier sheet, and it is exposed on the screen the same way as direct emulsion.
