Where Guitars are Born:  'Carmine Street Guitars'

Part love letter to the music that the wood of trees can release to birth another life; part love letter to the power of safe mentors who keep nearly extinct 'lost arts' alive, CARMINE STREET GUITARS is an extraordinary documentary film.  Here's a storied old school guitar making workshop on an unassuming street of the same name in the equally storied Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, NYC.  'Carmine Street Guitars,' opens in theaters this Friday, May 10th in LA.

WATCH THE TRAILER HERE!

A film by Ron Mann (Comic Book Confidential, Grass, Twist)

Featuring: Rick Kelly, Cindy Hulej and Dorothy Kelly

With appearances by: Eszter Balint, Christine Bougie, Nels Cline, Kirk Douglas, Eleanor Friedberger, Bill Frisell, Dallas and Travis Good, Dave Hill, Jaime Hince, Stuart Hurwood, Jim Jarmusch, Lenny Kaye, Marc Ribot and Charlie Sexton

Once the center 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. Nothing looks or sounds quite like a Rick Kelly guitar, which is the reason they are embraced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Jim Jarmusch, just to name a few.
 
Featuring a cast of prominent musicians and artists, and some virtuoso performances, the film captures five days in the life of one shop in the heart of Greenwich Village that remains resilient to an all-too-quickly vanishing way of life

    I didn’t know this shop until I watched this video. I’ll go to see it next week. I feel a little bit sad when you said that just only this shop still stays resilient to the encroaching gentrification. @Tara Fass, LMFT
