Once the centre of the New York bohemia, Greenwich Village is now home to lux restaurants, and buzzer door clothing stores catering to the nouveau riche. But one shop
in the heart of the Village remains resilient to the encroaching gentrification: Carmine Street Guitars. There, custom guitar maker Rick Kelly and his young apprentice
Cindy Hulej, build handcrafted guitars out of reclaimed wood from old hotels, bars, churches and other local buildings. Featuring a cast of prominent musicians and artists,
the film captures five days in the life of Carmine Street Guitars, while examining an all-too-quickly vanishing way of life.
Directed by Ron Mann; Starring Cindy Hulej, Eszter Balint, Christine Bougie, Nels Cline, Kirk Douglas, Eleanor Friedberger, Bill Frisell.
