Ropewalk: A Cordage Engineer's Journey Through History
Steve Fetsch's documentary links prehistoric tools, Benjamin Franklin and space travel with one common thread: rope. Fetsch explores rope's history -- its ancient beginnings, agriculture significance in Civil War-era Ohio and modern, high-tech uses. Narrated by Bill Hagenbuch, former president of one the country's last natural-fiber rope-making companies, the film features historical photographs and clips from mid-1900s industry reels.
