  • Heroines of the PIpes
  • Meet Anne Julie and Manduela Riger Kusk. These two ladies travel the world peddling their finely crafted wares. Men and women from across the globe admire and pursue them. These two Danish women are among the leading tobacco pipe makers of the world. Seen as a gentleman’s hobby, these exceptional women create highly coveted pipes. With prices ranging in the five figures, they are self-taught artisans and entrepreneurs whose individuality and freedom of expression have given them an edge in the male dominated pipe world. This film could be seen as politically incorrect; it is and it is not. The two protagonists are women aged 75 and 49 and they have made a lasting mark among their peers not because of their appearance or sex but because they are better than most of their male colleagues in the field of pipe making. Through their art and craftswomanship as pipe makers, they have found their way in the mainly male global pipe making world. Their friendship has been a source of strength, support and inspiration. Their pipes objects of beauty and precision
