Takumi: A 60,000-hour story on the survival of human craft questions whether the most devoted craftsmen and women will survive in an increasingly AI world.
Takumi: A 60,000-hour story on the survival of human craft follows four Japanese artisans who are dedicating their lives to their crafts, including a double Michelin-starred chef, a traditional paper-cutting artist, an automotive master craftsman and a carpenter for one of the oldest construction companies in the world.
Narrated by Former British Museum Director Neil Macgregor, the documentary includes interviews from world experts in craft and AI, and questions how we honour and preserve human craft in a world where machines are designed to act more precisely and faster than humans ever can.
