Dusty Groove Doc Dropping

"While the world of record stores and vinyl has been explored in film more than a few times, a new documentary focusing on Chicago's beloved Dusty Groove aims to shine a new light on the subject," Exclaim reports.

"Titled Dusty Groove: The Sound of Transition, the upcoming movie will focus not only on music and records but also follow the stories of customers selling their once-prized collections as they face major life transitions."

Here's the trailer:


Premiering at San Francisco Documentary Festival on June 8th.

"Filmmaker Danielle Beverly (Old South, SF DocFest 2015) tells the story of Chicago vinyl buyer Rick Wojcik who walks us into the homes - and stories - of strangers, digging through their jazz, soul, and hip hop records, purchasing their once-prized possessions. Each seller shares a common reason: they face a major life transition. The documentary is a collection of intimate narratives, akin to a record album of songs. About love, loss, and our deep personal connection to music."


Danielle Beverly has an MFA from Columbia College and is an assistant professor at Northwestern.


Rick Wojcik is a University of Chicago alum who co-founded Dusty Groove in 1996.
