Hot on the heels of Record Store Day (see http://www.recordstoreday.co.uk/ ) the Star and Shadow screens one of the most heartwarming music documentaries of recent years, Sound It Out, on Sunday 22nd April 2012.
Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.
SOUND IT OUT (75 mins) is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England. A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.
A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.
NEW YORK TIMES: “Like a mint pressing in a bargain bin SOUND IT OUT is a rare find.”
EMPIRE MAGAZINE: “Wonderful”
The Daily Telegraph: “Wondrous and funny”
NME: “Hilarious and incredibly heartwarming…”
