The Pohaku Ukulele (2013)
A film about Peter Hurney (luthier, artist, and craftsman of Berkeley California) and his ukulele workshop. This film follows Peter making a soprano ukulele from start to finish, set to a score by the fabulous ukulele player and composer Steven Strauss. The film uses very little dialogue- but relies on visual details and music, with the intent to glorify the process and appreciate the beauty of making something real. We also take a side trip to Peter’s living room to catch a glimpse of Hurney’s other art works, Automata Sculptures. With guest appearance of Steven Strauss trying out Pohaku ukuleles.
Produced, Directed, and filmed by David Silberberg
