Handmade on the Silk Road

The three-part series is about traditional crafts along the ancient trade route of the Silk Road. Each film follows a day in the working life of a weaver, woodcarver and potter in China, Uzbekistan and Iran. Beautifully filmed portraits of master craftsmen at work, the series captures in exquisite detail techniques handed down over generations. And from the bickering husband and wife silk weavers in China to the Iranian potter still teasing his son about who makes the best pots, the films are also delightful and warm observational documentaries.
