The Quest for Tonewood

Play trailer

Hans Lukas Hansen / NO, NL, 2021 / 83 min.

A documentary about a violin-maker and his search for the ideal wood might not seem like the most exciting option to the average cinema-goer. The Quest for Tonewood dismisses this misconception straight away: this is a real quest, with all the risks and setbacks you could want.

Gaspar Borchardt from Cremona in Italy is one of the best violin-makers in the world. Once, during a cycling holiday in Bosnia, he saw a three-hundred-year-old maple tree – a holy grail for craftsmen such as him.
