The Call


Every life is a story, and storytelling is the golden thread that binds generations and families into a thickly woven tapestry.

In this unique, one-hour documentary, six internationally renowned storytellers share both stories drawn from their lives as well as insights into the value of storytelling in our homes, our communities, our cultures, and our world.

Supported by an interactive web stie ( that promotes and describes the art of storytelling, "The Call of Story" will inspire you to weave your individual threads into the tapestry of life. 57 minutes.
