The Shoemaker, Short Film About a 91-Year-Old Brooklyn Shoemaker

“The Shoemaker” is a short documentary about Frank Catalfumo, a 91-year-old shoemaker and repairer in Brooklyn. Catalfumo opened his shoe shop after returning home from World War II in 1945. Despite being well past retirement age, he still works five days a week (along with his son). The film was directed by photographer Dustin Cohen. Cohen has also posted a photo essay about Catalfumo and his shoe shop.
