Other Music Documentary
From directors Puloma Basu and Rob Hatch-Miller, a deep dive into NYC's Other Music, a place "where bands were formed, record labels were born and careers were launched." At the dawn of the Internet age, the store, which shuttered in 2016, served as a hub for gathering and musical inspiration. This documentary serves as a love letter to the store, and to notion of shared space.
