Why Watch? Vinyl collection is a growing trend, and this raw documentary focuses on the personal reasons a handful of collectors give for why they’ve become addicted.
It’s a bit raw, but the rough edges actually help it out. This is clearly an independent, student production that doesn’t have time or money for the fancy stuff, and the result is a doc that digs down to the roots of its subject.
The short also raises some important questions. Why buy a CD when you can make your own? Does vinyl give a greater sense of ownership than downloading a digital copy? Are we reaching back to the past because we’re broke? And of course, beyond the questions, it features some great music.
What does it cost? Just 10 minutes of your time.
