Cherry Colour Buttonholes

There are many self-help films on the inter-net, which demonstrate the making process, but they do not reveal the significant exchanges that occur between individuals. My practice is concerned with enabling skilled practitioners to communicate their experiences/history. The film features a group of people who gather to hand stitch the twenty-one buttonholes in cherry colour twist. My intention is to explore the potential of sharing skills and my aim is to generate social conversations through this activity. My key interest is how skills are used today before they are lost forever. In the story, The Tailor of Gloucester, mice stitch the one and twenty buttonholes because the tailor was taken ill. Nowadays the skill of hand stitching buttonholes has virtually ceased to be used because buttonholes are pre-programmed on machines, thus reducing the time consuming necessity of sewing by hand.

Way better than I thought it would be based on the previews.

It's been a long time since I've seen a Short film that so wonderfully blends together such a high level of emotional depth.

Arguably this should not be a difficult film to review. It is nothing less than brilliant. The story, the direction, the musical score, the casting, the acting, the dialog. Brilliant!!! Just brilliant!
