The Booksellers | Official Trailer

The Booksellers | Official Trailer

In 1950s New York, there were 368 booksellers in the city. Today, there are 79. Along with monumental changes in the dominate form of communication and electric media, the book and the bookseller may look like an anachronism of a bygone age — and you’d be wrong. From lifelong book dealers to rookies, The Booksellers looks at an old profession, and one of our most important.

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers. In Theaters March 6, 2020 Director: D.W. Young
