Documentary film by Elizabeth Reta on the reconstruction of a historical pedal harp in the studio of Swiss harp maker Beat Wolf.
The film-intro was recorded at the International Harp Exhibition 2001 in Lucerne. The film shows all steps of work for the single action harp in 7 stages: from wood storing over all the wood works up to varnishing; further from all metal work for pedals and mechanism up to the finished instrument, which is finally rehearsed by a harpist.
Elizabeth Reta succeeds to transform the traditional handcraft adequately into an atmospheric film without any squiggles. The concept follows to a large extent the dogme 95.
