Out this week on DVD is Michel Gondry's joyful ode to filmmaking, "Be Kind Rewind." I talked with Gondry in February for a feature about the film and its companion gallery installation at Deitch Projects in Soho.
"The zany film follows a magnetically charged Jerry (Jack Black), who inadvertently erases all of the VHS tapes in a video store run by Mike (Mos Def). The two set out to remake the lost films—albeit crudely—with neighborhood folks (including rising star Melonie Diaz as Alma), a camcorder, and whatever happens to be on hand."
