Old Man

April of 2013, four months prior to the destruction of Boulder, Colorado by a record-breaking flood, Andrew Schneidkraut stands in front of the store he has owned for 25 years and recites a poem that recalls a great flood from the past. A documentary constructed like none other, Old Man more closely resembles a biographical novel than a film. Set in and around a dying record store and told through striking still images and detailed personal stories, Old Man captures the enduring relationship between a father and son as they confront personal failures and a history of familial trouble and violence.
