A new documentary by first time director Faythe Levine, Handmade Nation takes a look at the evolution of the craft/DIY movement. From the website:
“Handmade nation documents a movement of artists, crafters and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, punk and DIY (do it yourself) ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. Fueled by the common thread of creating, Handmade Nation explores a burgeoning art community that is based on creativity, determination and networking.”
