AT THE VIDEO STORE is a loving ode to the dying art of connection and curation. Director James Westby (Film Geek, The Auteur, Rid of Me) weaves together the macro-narrative of the industry’s changing business model with the intimate memories of store owners and cinema icons like John Waters, Nicole Holofcener, Gus Van Sant, and Bill Hader. While nostalgic for what was lost, the film is hopeful about what neighborhood video stores can still offer a world starved for authentic human interaction.
