About Henry Glassie: Field Work

Not rated
Year Released:

Over the last 50 years, the celebrated American Folklorist Henry Glassie has been writing in-depth studies of communities and their art.  Inspired by the writings and ideas of Glassie, the film is an immersive and meditative documentary set among the rituals and rhythms of working artists across Brazil, Turkey, North Carolina, and Ireland.  The process of making something out of raw materials is luminously manifested in sequences which reflect in their measured and attentive approach the actual real time process of making, of the work of hands and of the close attention the artist is bringing to the work. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles.
