The Strip Show
I love Pittsburgh. A lot. And The Strip Show, Rick Sebak's documentary about Pittsburgh's strip district (the wholesale foods area of Pittsburgh that has gradually turned retail over the last 150 years) does a lot to show why. Sure, Pittsburgh has lots of hidden treasures, but more than anything, it is full of people who absolutely love their work, whether it be making biscotti, roasting coffee, selling fruit, making robots, or studying the history of Pittsburgh. Rick does a great job of seeking these people out, and showing how much they love what they do. Probably, they are drawn to Rick, because just watching his documentaries, you can tell how much Rick loves what he does!
