The Stone Carvers
This Academy Award-winning documentary captures the artistic and cultural contributions of the stone carvers who worked for decades to complete the Washington National Cathedral. Through a series of informal and formal oral history interviews, the creators weave a powerful yet concise narrative about a craft that is fast disappearing in the United States. The film covers both the technical aspects of stone carving and the warm camaraderie that developed between the men who spent much of their lives working on the cathedral building.
