J. Fred Woell: An American Vision captures the essence of this pioneering, political artist who believed deeply in the power of the creative spirit. As a patriot he had profound beliefs in democratic ideals, yet saw the flaws in American politics. He used art to make satirically-searing commentary, often on the dark side of history. An inspiring, humble and humorous artist and teacher, Woell opened the door to a new way of seeing.

The Late Great Disposable Society, 1983, J. Fred Woell

The film features some luminaries in the American craft world including Helen Drutt, Paul Smith, Glenn Adamson, Eleanor Moty and several others.
