The Shoemaker (Runtime 28mins)
"We repair everything but a broken heart"
Written & Directed by Kaves
Before Nike, and Adidas, there was the Hi-Jo! Here is a Brooklyn tale set back in the day (1960’s) about a young Italian-American shoemaker (Frank) on the verge of greatness. News comes from his cousins in Italy that they have obtained the first automated vulcanizing machinery to produce gym shoes called the Hi-Jo. All Frank needs is fifty thousand dollars to ship the equipment and set up a factory in Brooklyn and the help from the neighborhood, his friends and his family to achieve the dream of a lifetime! Everything seems to be in place until his wife walks into the shoe shop and asks for a divorce.
