A new documentary directed by French producer Wax Tailor profiles the principal figures behind some of America’s most distinguished record stores.
Filmed while on his last US tour, Wax Tailor aimed at giving a voice to the members of the music community who are rarely heard. The new documentary, titled ‘In Wax We Trust’, features interviews with the owners of each store, focusing on what drives them to sell records in a world increasingly dematerialized.
Record shops he visited include Black Dots Records, Charlemagne Record Exchange, Hymie's Vintage Records, Jerry's Records, Luna Music, Madcity Music Exchange, Papa Jazz Record Shoppe, Record Exchange, Repo Records, Schoolkids Records and Wax’n’Facts.
