Buy it

I funded this film because I loved the idea when Jeanie pitched it at a workshop in Nottingham, and Jeanie herself struck me as a person who could get things done and create a story with style and emotion.
Jeanie’s remarks about her films falling into a ‘grey area’ which rather than campaigning, judging or educating deals with human characters in all their complexity really resonated with me. I think we need to see more docs like this and those are the kinds of films I want to keep making myself.
I’m ashamed to say I have never bought a record.

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
