Film Series: Life’s Work

Life’s Work: Six Conversations with Makers was created in 2015.  Craft Alliance Atlantic and our industry partner Craft Nova Scotia commissioned the development of a documentary style film series focused on six master craft makers working in different craft disciplines across Nova Scotia. The completed series, produced and filmed by two-time Oscar winner Ben Proudfoot, at Breakwater Studios was subsequently re-produced as a documentary for television and is was shown for several years on the CBC Documentary Channel and streaming online since the Spring of 2017.
