Blacksmith. A short film about the art of forging iron

This is a short poetic documentary featuring Rob Flurry, the resident blacksmith at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum in Beaumont, Texas. 

In his forge, Flurry is an old-school artisan - he relies on his simple tools, nature's basic elements, and his own strength to hammer out his work.
