Carmine Street Guitars

Director Ron Mann
Canada / 80 min. / 2018 / English


Tribute to the luthier who made guitars with wood from demolished NYC buildings, for Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Jim Jarmusch and anyone who wants to play "a piece of city”.


A treasure hunter, a scavenger of "the bones of old New York". This is how Rick Kell defines himself, a luthier who gets wood from buildings, establishments and centennial parks in the city and builds unmistakable handmade guitars with it. In this film, we settle peacefully into his Greenwich Village workshop and store, with his playful apprentice and his elderly mother who, when not dusting off portraits of grateful customers such as Robert Quine, Lou Reed or G.E. Smith, switches between accounting and crochet to swing rhythms. And, every so often, an impressive cast of artists parades: The Sadies, Jim Jarmusch, Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Band), Bill Frisell, the violinist Eszter Balint, "Captain" Kirk Douglas (The Roots), Nels Cline (Wilco), Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces), Jamie Hince (The Kills), Marc Ribot ... And they all share experiences with the humble craftsman and serenade those history-laden pieces of wood. An intimate documentary, small and beautiful, that flits between pornography for guitarists and archaeology for pedigree rock mythologists.
