Michel Gondry Director
With his seven feature films, several shorts and seventy-odd music videos, Michel Gondry, who is also a musician, has created an incredibly original body of work coloured with dreamscape qualities and Utopian ideals. A master craftsman, a modern day Méliès, he is a cinemagician who constantly reinvents the technical effects and enchantments of the medium of film.
In 2001, his first feature film, Human Nature, was selected for the Festival de Cannes. He was back in
2008 with the Tokyo! triptych at Un Certain Regard, and presented the documentary The Thorn in the
Heart out of competition in 2009.
The Academy Award winning screenplay in 2004, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was followed
in 2006 by The Science of Sleep and Be Kind, Rewind in 2008. The Green Hornet, on general release in France since January 2011, has been his biggest box office hit thus far.
At the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Michel Gondry has just opened his Amateur Film Factory (Usine de
films amateurs) as part of the Nouveau Festival. It is part creative studio think-tank and part DIY laboratory – a space offering anyone the chance to make a short film in three hours.
