Detail instructions on getting your film to play here


Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and they 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. Executive produced by Parker Posey, the film features interviews with some of the most important dealers in the business, as well as prominent collectors, auctioneers, and writers such as Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Kevin Young and Gay Talese. Both a loving celebration and serious exploration of this charming niche, THE BOOKSELLERS offers a rare glimpse into many unique and remarkable objects, including the most expensive book ever sold, Da Vinci’s The Codex Leicester; books bound in human flesh; essential early hip-hop documents; accounts of polar expeditions published with samples of real wooly mammoth fur; and many more.

After your ticket purchase, you have THREE day to enjoy.
