From the 80s, Michel Gondry starts with the making of music videos for Oui Oui, his own group in which he's the drummer, and became over the years one of the most famous music video directors in the world, notably collaborating with Björk, the Rolling Stones, Chemical Brothers, IAM, Radiohead, Kylie Minogue and White Stripes. In 2001, he directed his first feature film, the fable Human Nature, starring Patricia Arquette and Tim Robbins as two scientists who's lost faith in the human race. This film gave Michel Gondry the opportunity of working with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, with whom he teamed up in 2004 on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2005. Gondry followed up with a double adventure, both scripting and directing The Science of Sleep, a dreamlike film with Gael García Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg. As eclectic as ever, he directed the comedy Be Kind Rewind, the family documentary The Thorn in the Heart, then an adaptation of the 60s TV hero and comic strip, The Green Hornet, and an urban drama about high school students from the Bronx, The We and the I. In 2013, Gondry brought to the screen Boris Vian's novel Mood Indigo, with Audrey Tautou and Roman Duris. The same year, through a series of interviews, Gondry directed Is the Man Who is Tall Happy?, an animated documentary about the work of the famous American linguist. Gondry's unique project for amateur filmmakers, "The Home Move Factory" travels through the world. After New-York, Rio, São Paulo, Paris, Rotterdam, Johannesburg, Moscow and Casablanca, it just settled in Tokyo.
