This stunning, meditative documentary about folkloric art is an enthralling portrait of people practising traditional crafts, such as pottery and woodworking. Sound boring? It’s anything but. Take the American anthropologist Henry Glassie, for example, who has studied different folk cultures in this way for the past fifty years. Glassie invites you to join him on a journey around the world to observe folk art and to discover what it can teach us.

An international journey takes an engineer past unique structures from the distant and not-so-distant past that seem to defy the laws of nature. Along the way, he learns about the complex mathematical methods that prevent these ambitious structures from collapsing. In a poetic way he makes connections between the tensile strength of these buildings and society. Tension Structures is a unique visual experience that will give you a new appreciation of buildings.
