Hello, Bookstore

Dir: A. B. Zax
Starring Matt Tannenbaum

A charming love-letter to literature and local cultural institutions and the connections they foster…

In the shadow of adversity, a small town rallies to protect a beloved local bookstore in its hour of need. A landmark in Lenox, Massachusetts, The bookstore is a magical, beatnik gem thanks to its owner Matt Tannenbaum, whose passion for stories runs deep. Presiding at The Bookstore for over forty years, Matt is a true bard of the Berkshires and his shop is the kind of place to get lost in. This intimate portrait of The Bookstore and the family at its heart offers a journey through good times, hard times and the stories hidden on the shelves.

An affectionate, offbeat portrait of a beloved bookshop and the family at its heart, Hello, Bookstore is a tribute to the love of reading and to the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of its owner, as well as a reminder of the endless inspirations and essential community and cultural service that bookshops provide.
