ICFF & Lavazza IncluCity Festival - The Quest for Tonewood

One man’s search for the perfect sound will lead him on the adventure of a lifetime - Let's hop on this documentary and find it out yourself!

Italy-based violin maker (luthier) Gaspar Borchardt has one passion: crafting the most beautiful sounding violin in the world. Hoping to make a violin as prestigious as a Stradivarius, Borchardt has his sights set on the perfect wood found in only one location: a remote forest in the Balkans. Nestled between Bosnia and Serbia lies a forest of maple trees but Borchardt’s journey to procure the wood will not be an easy one. Tied up in the politics and conflicts of the area, he will have to navigate so much more than just the winding, remote roads and forests of rural Bosnia. Recognizing that the trees are worth their weight in gold, Borchardt is determined despite the many obstacles he encounters on the way. Perfect for classical music lovers and adventure seekers this high-stakes treasure hunt is as exciting as it is inspiring!

Playing at our unique outdoor theatre - Spirit Theater - in the heart of the Distillery Historic District, this is an opportunity you don't want to miss!
