Life in Black and White: Domino Club

More

"Every day we play dominoes, rain or shine."  

Life in Black and White is a series of four beautifully shot documentaries featuring people who work in "black and white." Sonny Gilbert, the founder of the San Francisco Domino Club, is passionate about the game and building community. Other films in the series feature crossword puzzles, penguins, and grand pianos; you can watch them here.

Filmmaker Regina Rivard talks about the making of the series in an interview with The Atlantic:

I have an incredibly curious nature, especially when it comes to people and how they decide to live their lives. I started this project because I wanted to see how people uniquely different than me came to be where they are and if they are happy. I knew that I could use video as a way to meet people that I wouldn't necessarily have run into, and be able to ask them questions that I wouldn't normally ask someone that I just met. In the end I got invited to shoot at places that I don't think I would have ever been able to go on my own.

Life in Black and White: Part II is produced, directed and edited by Regina Rivard, and shot by Josh Hittleman and Rob Fitzgerald. Audio is by Ben Morse and music is by Andy Greenwood
