Carmine Street Guitars

Canada, 2018, 80mins, Cert.TBC

Film description

Gentrification has transformed New York’s Greenwich Village since its 60s heyday but one shop remains true to its independent roots. Carmine Street Guitars is run by Rick Kelly and his young apprentice Cindy Hulej. They handcraft unique instruments out of reclaimed wood from old hotels, bars, churches and other local buildings, every guitar has a story rooted in the city’s rich history. Filmmaker Ron Mann watches them work and observes a series of fascinating conversations with prominent musicians and artists trying out the merchandise including Nels Cline, Bill Frisell, Jim Jarmusch and Lenny Kaye.
