Sound It Out (dir: Jeanie Finlay, UK 2011, 74 mins)
Nottingham-based filmmaker Jeanie Finlay has developed a reputation for off-beat documentaries including Teenland and Goth Cruise. For her latest film she has trained her camera on the employees and punters of Sound It Out, Teesside’s last surviving independent record shop, and crafted a moving portrait of vinyl obsessions. These include metal, Status Quo, obscure indie and a brand of dance music known locally as ‘makina’, which drives owner Tom nuts while helping to keep the shop afloat. As he says: “We sell a lot of hard music, but it’s a hard area.” Jeanie is currently working with Multistory in West Bromwich on a project about happiness, and we’re delighted that she will be present to talk about the film.
