The rise, fall and resurrection of the father of the American Arts and Crafts movement is chronicled in GUSTAV STICKLEY: AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN, which offers an unprecedented look at the life and works of Stickley as told through interviews, archival materials and a close examination of his most iconic works. GUSTAV STICKLEY: AMERICAN CRAFTSMAN traces the development and evolution of Stickley's unique style as well as the creation of his diverse businesses, including furniture manufacturing, a ground-breaking Manhattan store and the Craftsman Magazine and Craftsman Farms — a progenitor of the farm-to-table movement. It also details the eventual loss of his businesses, and, after several decades, the rebirth and recognition of the movement he inspired. The film visits several key locations in his lifetime, including his Syracuse home, where he lived and created his first arts and crafts interior, and the pump house at Skaneateles Lake in upstate New York, which he restored as a summer family camp. We also meet some of the talented collaborators Stickley surrounded himself with, such as Harvey Ellis, Lamont Warner and Irene Sargent.
