In this short film, we talk to artisan Antonis Malamis at his workshop in Athens about his dying profession – maintaining and repairing pianos. Antonis explains why the piano is a mirror of its master and how decisions made under the Thatcher government in the 1980s continue to have dire effects on the present state of the UK industry nearly 30 years on.
