Father the Flame

Father the Flame will be a feature-length documentary about slowing down, embracing life, and learning something in the process. It's also about tobacco pipes. We will delve into the modern world of the pipe culture, explore the historical journey of the tobacco pipe and show the making of a pipe from harvesting briar in Italy to a finished pipe made by a craftsman in a corner of Michigan. Through interviews, narration, and cinematic imagery we will explore the timeless and transcendant nature of pipes.
