Dusty Groove: The Sound of Transition

See All Screenings


In Dusty Groove: The Sound of Transition, vinyl buyer Rick Wojcik walks us into the homes – and stories – of strangers, digging 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 connection to music.
