Luther Metke at 94

Color, almost completely faded to red

From Wikipedia:

Luther Metke at 94 is a 1979 American short documentary film directed by Jorge Preloran and Steve Raymen at the Ethnographic Film Program, University of California, Los Angeles. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short in 1980.[1]

The film presents a portrait of Luther Metke, a veteran of the Spanish–American War. Even in his advanced age, Metke continues his work of building log cabins by hand in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. The film documents many aspects of log cabin building as Metke works on a hexagonal cabin and teaches his methods to a young couple.[2] Additional footage shows Metke's daily life, accompanied by a voice over of his recollections, commentary on log cabin construction, and musings on life.[3] Metke also shares some of his poetry on camera and through voiceover.

From in-box label:

An outstanding example of the folk wisdom, artistry and genuine human warmth of a man living a full life in his older age. Incoporating his poetry, portions of his past, his reflections on life and his interactions with family and friends, "Luther Metke at 94" is a positive portrait of a man at peace with himself and actively involved in the world around him.

There are two small Study Guides in the can.
