A teaser for the 2nd short film in our Vanishing Seattle Film Series, featuring Hardwick’s — a Seattle institution and 4th-generation independent hardware store in the #UDistrict that has supported boat builders, woodworkers, carpenters, artists, craft & tradespeople, and countless Seattlelites & small businesses for nearly nine decades. Hardwick’s Hardware plans to close this year, as they’re being priced out by a changing Seattle and #UniversityDistrict (in the meantime, continue to support them!) Full film dropping next week! Directed by Derek Johnson and Lisa B. Hammond, with support from Kai Films. @derek_johnson_dp @hammondryes_eyes @hardwicks The Vanishing Seattle film series takes a deeper dive into the stories of history, legacy and resilience behind the #VanishingSeattle hashtag.
