Sensational and beautifully moving docco!
24 January 2021 | by greenmanwoodworksozSee all my reviews

This film was just a joy from start to finish, quite moving at times, fascinating throughout. It's a great tribute, and celebration of the sheer passion and joy people bring to an almost forgotten art. Beautifully done!
