Everything passes, Jeanie’s films are – among other things – meditations on the transitory nature of the present. Her camera observes what is, now, without judgement, valuing it for itself, while accepting that it will never be there again. Implicit, in the act of recording, is the knowledge that the recording itself will change – both its meaning over time and its eventual physical disintegration.

The first and last records I bought:
First: Two Little Boys by Rolf Harris
Last: A 45 by Billy Bragg called ‘Johnny Clash’.

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.
