VIDEO: The Birdman

By FT

New Yorkers are some of the most interesting, friendly and eccentric people around. They’re original and that’s what makes them so refreshing. Whenever I travel there I always seem to get into multiple conversations with strangers while on the elevator. The city is full of so many fascinating people.

Which brings me to The Birdman; a New York City music shop keeper struggling to sell his eclectic mix of CDs, VHSs and old cassette tapes stacked head high in his store Rainbow Music amid the gentrification overtaking his neighbourhood.

Check out this award-winning short doc created by Brooklyn based filmmaker Jessie Auritt.
