Old Man

OLD MAN tells the story of the rise and fall of ALBUMS ON THE HILL, the last record store in Boulder, Colorado, a town that was once home to more music stores than any city in America. OLD MAN unfolds as Andrew Schneidkraut, the proprietor of ALBUMS ON THE HILL and father to director Dan Schneidkraut, reflects on his life and his failures through intense personal anecdotes and poetry. Dan tries desperately to reconnect with his father while he recalls difficult stories from his childhood and reflects on his undying reverence for his father through first person narration and striking still imagery. While father and son try to make sense of their lives thus far, the record store at the center of OLD MAN serves as a powerful metaphor for obsolescence – a place of communion and comfort that may never exist again.
