Michel Gondry's charming 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind catapulted the French director into the global spotlight, earning him an Oscar and also drawing more attention to his innovative music video and art projects. Gondry's quirky, wondrously nerdy worldview will now be on display at this exhibit, which consists of two separate 'packages'. First, the 'Home Movie Factory' is where you can join a group of around 10 other visitors to plan and shoot your very own film in a mere three hours, Be Kind Rewind-style. No acting or filmography experience is required, and an instructor will be on hand to guide you in the right direction on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Twelve set options ranging from a backstreet café to a train are offered, and you’ll also have the opportunity to get together with the group later on to watch the finished product. Second, 'Around the World in 19 Videos' is an installation made up of 19 Gondry-directed music videos, exhibiting his inventive visual style and techniques of manipulating cinematic reality. Finally, the exhibition also features displays of props and drawings used in this mise en scène wizard's movies.
