Film Screening

Good Work: Masters of the Building Arts

Thursday, March 23, 2017 | 7:00pm

Academy Award-winning directors Marjorie Hunt and Paul Wagner reunite for "Good Work: Masters of the Building Arts," which showcases 10 American artisans in the building trades, including four with hands-on experience at Washington National Cathedral.

Join us for a free screening of "Good Work," followed by a short discussion with the filmmakers and the Cathedral artisans whose work is featured in the film.

The documentary illustrates the diversity of beautiful and functional works of art, from stained glass to masonry to ironwork and hard-carved lettering. "Good Work" celebrates American craftsmanship, occupational traditions, the beauty of our built environment and the importance of “good work.”

Washington National Cathedral is grateful to the support of the National Trust for Historic Preservation for their underwriting support of this film screening.

Purchase DVD of Marjorie Hunt's earlier Cathedral film, "The Stone Carvers."
