Strasburg Film Festival short Our Roots follows Jean-Claude, who has worked as a carpenter since the age of 14. No longer a job, carpentry has slowly become Jean-Claude’s passion. The knowledge and experience Jean-Claude has gained over the decades is personal time capsule of a craft and way of life that is fading in the face of modern expansion.


Our Roots will be shown on Saturday, November the 10th, 3:25 PM  Strasburg Town Hall. Tickets can be found on the film’s event page.
