After a successful early career as a music video director (collaborating with Radiohead, Kylie Minogue, Björk and Chemical Brothers among others), French director Michel Gondry made his Hollywood debut in 2004 with the Academy-Award winning film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, written by Charlie Kauffman and starring Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey. He has continued ever since to develop his unique cinematic world: quirky, dreamlike, surreal, fantastic, the product of an unbounded imagination somewhat at odds with today’s cinema’s high-tech one-upmanship.
Join Hollywood screenwriter and Fordham’s artist-in-residence James Jennewein and Audrey Evrard, Assistant Professor of French, for a rare conversation with Michel Gondry, whose latest film, Microb and Gasoline, will be premiering in the US at the 53rd New York Film Festival hosted by the Film Society at the Lincoln Center.

This is a public event, open to all, organized in partnership with Unifrance films and hosted by the Departments of Modern Languages and Communication and Media Studies.
