The story of the most important instrument you've never heard of.
THE BOWMAKERS explores the world of the bow and the extraordinary masters who make them. The film follows the journey of the “silent servant” of the music world—from the workshops of the virtuosos of the trade, to the birthplace of the bow in France, and to Brazil, home to the imperiled tree from which the world’s finest bows are made.
