“The passionate apprentices” is a 75 minute feature documentary. In a hidden valley in southern Tasmania, three men have spent decades mastering the ancient crafts of knifemaking, beekeeping and breadmaking. Now each has found an apprentice. Skills are being taught, secrets shared and passions passed on.
During the film, the links that bind an old-world community are uncovered: Merlin the Knifemaker’s apprentice turns out to be the Baker’s oldest son. Knives created in John’s forge end up in the Bakery kitchen – and so it goes on. The film offers an intimate portrait of a close-knit group of inspiring people, who share a passion for perfection.
