A Place for Gold

UK, 1960 (MIFF 1962, Crafts)

Director: Basil Wright

Commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, this documentary deals with aspects of their craft. Informative and elegant, the gold and silver bowls and cups and ornaments are handsomely photographed, and the film reflects a generous admiration for beauty, tradition and the dignities of the craft.
