This Short Film About Shoemaking Will Make You Want Better Shoes

The most recent in a series of short documentaries by filmmaker Dustin Cohen, The Shoemaker is a film about Frank Catalfumo: a 91-year-old shoemaker and repairer who's lived in Brooklyn his entire life. Catalfumo opened his shoe shop upon return from World War II in 1945, and despite his age still works there five days a week.

The video's an inspirational look at a man who's well and truly mastered his craft — and it will make you feel guilty for wearing crappy shoes, guaranteed. [Made in Brooklyn via Laughing Squid]
