about

For Walter Backerman, seltzer is more than a drink. It is the embodiment of his family.


As a third generation seltzer man, he follows parts of the same cobblestone route his grandfather began in 1920’s Manhattan.


Walter maintains a collection of more than seven thousand antique bottles that he circulates to his customers. Many bear the family name, a tribute to his father and his grandfather before him.


Now, after 90 years of the Backerman’s being in the business, Walter knows all too well that he may be the last of the family’s seltzer men.


Remember These Days is a product of the MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop, where participants work alongside MediaStorm staff to create an intimate, character-driven documentary in just one week. Learn more about upcoming MediaStorm workshops and online training at mediastorm.com/train.
