IN PRAISE OF HANDSPosted: May 23, 2013
From the National Film Board of Canada, “This short documentary pays tribute to the craftsmen everywhere whose work adds color and richness to life. Filmed in the Canadian Arctic, Finland, India, Nigeria, Japan, Mexico, and Poland, it shows the special skills of artisans working at their crafts – stone sculpture, pottery, ceramics, weaving, dyeing, puppet making, embroidery. Each indigenous skill is a reflection of the culture of the country.”
This is quite an inspiring film, it captures a world of handicrafts in a time prior to globalization.
