New documentary on Mike Abbot

As I started exploring the world of green woodworking, it became apparent that England has a thriving movement.  Names kept recurring, like Robin Wood, Ben Orford, Barn the Spoon, and many others.  Mike Abbot was another of those woodworkers, but a certain reverence was assigned to him in most blog posts.  He teaches green woodworking and especially chair making in East Herefordshire, and has also published at least three books on the subject.
Anyway, I ran across a trailer for a documentary on him, due to come out soonish.
Here it is:

Green Wood (Preview) from Elliott Forge on Vimeo.

Also, I quite like Eliot Forge's videos.  Worth following on Vimeo.
