The Archive

Following on from his stunning documentary The Bowler, which I posted on Directors Notes yesterday, comes Sean Dunne’s earlier Sundance selected short The Archive. Again, Dunne’s film is overflowing with luscious visuals and a fascinating subject and for all true music fans this short really is a must.

Paul Mawhinney was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Over the years he has amassed what has become the world’s largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection.

This is the story of a man and his records.
