Carmine Street Guitars - Watch Online

GFT is partnering with Modern Films on ‘virtual cinema’ screenings of Carmine Street Guitars from 26 June. We will receive a portion of income from any virtual GFT tickets sold.

About the Film

At the heart of Greenwich Village, New York, amidst the newly developed luxury restaurants and boutique clothing stores, sits Carmine Street Guitars; a sacred destination for the world’s most notorious guitar players and musicians. In the humble woodworks of Carmine Street Guitars, owner Rick Kelly and his young apprentice Cindy Hulej, build custom handcrafted guitars out of reclaimed wood from old hotels, bars, churches and other local buildings. At the core of their physical craft lies New York’s vibrant cultural history— embraced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Patti Smith and Jim Jarmusch since the store’s inception in 1970 bohemia New York.

"Unhurried and unfazed, much like the master craftsman it focuses on, Carmine Street Guitars is a lovely snapshot of a quiet yet vital corner of authentic artistry in Greenwich Village." - Paul Gallagher, GFT Programme Manager
