This has to be one of the best short films I have seen for sometime now. It captures something very special, and something that not everyone can see, tacit knowledge.
Just watch Cliff’s hands, and how he handles the scissors; not everyone will see, certainly those who have worked with their hands will….
This to me is very special, people with tacit knowledge are the keepers of our past, our heritage, our culture and identity. It gives me great pride to see this in my lifetime, and hope that these special skills will be passed down to others, for their future as a gift from our past.
Now, every time I watch this film, I feel the need to buy more scissors, can’t be bad.
