Henry Glassie: Fieldwork for Toronto International Film Festival

21/09/2019

World Premiere of Henry Glassie: Fieldwork for Toronto Film Festival 2019

“Henry Glassie has made a life out of studying folk artists and the marvels they create. Over the past 50 years, the renowned US scholar has travelled to five continents, conducting fieldwork with an obsessive thoroughness. Each project Glassie undertakes requires at least a decade.
