Film Summary

Sound Vision | 1:44 | 2016 | USA | | View Website

It's a story that beggars belief—a bipolar practitioner of "candle magick" living in a dilapidated farmhouse in rural Ohio with a lifelong obsession for building violins (and covered in tattoos of master builders such as Stradivarius) convinces a world-renowned soloist via social media that he is capable of creating a perfect replica of the world's most valuable violin, Guarneri's Il Cannone. A quirky look into one man's DIY enthusiasm and perseverance when facing down a self-created, impossible task, Strad Style is the feel-good doc of MFF2017.
