Good Work: Masters Of The Building Arts  (available this week only)
Marjorie Hunt & Paul Wagner, 65 min

A documentary film portrait of artisans from across America working in the building trades. They include Scots-American decorative painters restoring the ceiling of Trinity Church in Boston and Mexican-American terra cotta workers restoring a Chicago skyscraper, a stone mason and stained glass craftsman maintaining Washington National Cathedral, a Creole plasterer in New Orleans and a Hispanic adobe builder in New Mexico, an ornamental iron blacksmith from Virginia, and the New England stone carver who created the lettering on the World War II Memorial in Washington. In these eight segments, the film celebrates American craftsmanship, occupational traditions, the beauty of our built environment, and the importance of Good Work.
