APOLLONIAN STORY

For over 40 years, Nissim has been chipping away at a seaside limestone cliff just north of Tel Aviv. Though continually under construction, the intricate home he has built for himself is truly incredible. When his son comes to help for the summer, eccentricities arise that surely predate his work of passion. Nissim's reclusive obsession is at once alarming and amusing. This beautiful, and often humorous film speaks volumes about investments in work, family and self. – BK

A small, family-run foundry in Normandy accepts its biggest project ever: replacing 36 tons of hand-cast bells that hang in the tower of Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral. Ancient materials, including horse dung and goat hair, are blended with modern technology to accomplish this endeavor with great pride and master craftsmanship. – TM
