In the music world, Port Townsend, Washington, is known as “The Mecca of bowmaking.” No less than five world-renowned bowmakers live and work there, creating handcrafted violin, viola and cello bows for the world stage.
Director Ward Serrill (The Heart of the Game), presents an advance audience participation screening of The Bowmakers, a feature about the most important instrument in the orchestra. The film travels from the Pacific Northwest to the bow’s origins in France and to Brazil where the one tree in the world grows that produces bows.
You will be the first audience to see this documentary and will help shape its final form. Following the screening, the filmmakers need to hear your impressions of the film.
