Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A tribute to the craftsmen everywhere whose work adds colour 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. Film without words. (Award: Moscow)
