A film by Ward Serrill
The story of the most important instrument you've never heard of.
THE BOWMAKERS explores the world of the bow and the extraordinary masters who make them. The film follows the journey of the âsilent servantâ of the music worldâfrom the workshops of the virtuosos of the trade, to the birthplace of the bow in France, and to Brazil, home to the imperiled tree from which the worldâs finest bows are made.
