Work in Progress

This trailer is for a documentary by Bill Stone about a spectacular dry stone wall that is being built at the site of this year's Canadian 'Festival of Stone' in Quebec Ontario. It's entitled 'A Work In Progress'. Among other exciting events this film and several other interesting films about walling and stonework will be shown at the 2012 festival in October near Montreal Quebec.

Chris Overing is the creator and relentless motivating force behind this ongoing wall project that has spanned a several years and many many meters.


  1. Is gravel a proper hearting material? And judging by the movie the wall is batterless?? Any specific reason you think for the lack of batter and gravel fill??

  2. I think you will have to ask Chris Overing in person at this Thanksgiving Festivsl of Stone in Quebec the reason.
