"A Thousand Hands Ago"

Recommended Posts


"A short film about of recalling the knowledge of long dead craftsmen.

Over the course of three days, Danish kayak builder Anders Thygesen builds an Aleutian iqyax  -

by the shore of his local lake."

( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleutian_kayak )

"He reflects on the process of learning these skills from masters whom he has never met.

Shot and edited by Silje Ensby.
Music by Pernille Meidell

En kortdokumentar om å studere under læremestere som for lengst er borte. 
Med kroppen som måleredskap bygger Anders Thygesen en tradisjonell iqyax ved Eikeren i Buskerud, mens han reflekterer rundt prosessen ved å studere under læremestere han aldri har møtt."


Listening to this on headphones made it more enjoyable, for me ...

Nice atmos. Anders' narration is subdued. Music only at the very end.
