Join us November 1 for an opening night with director Ward Serrill! Champagne reception included with your ticket purchase. Stick around after the film for a Q&A with the director. Yes, this counts for a Doctober Challenge punch! The story of the “silent servant” of the music world—the bow. Journey from the workshops of five master bowmakers in the Pacific Northwest, to the fascinating origin of the bow in France, and to Brazil, home of the imperiled tree from which the finest bows are made. A film for all people who love music. A film about hope and beauty, and how a handful of craftsmen are preserving this centuries-old trade in service to world-class musicians.
