We're barely three months into 2013, and director Michel Gondry is serving up plenty for his fans. His long brewing Noam Chomsky documentary, "Is The Tall Man Happy?" has started screening and later on this year, he'll deliver the whimsical "Mood Indigo." But before that, the writer/director will help usher in summer with "The We And The I," another interesting gear change for Gondry that finds him working with non-actors, in a unique story that follows a group of teenagers on a city bus on the last day of school.

The We And The I Michel Gondry

We're barely three months into 2013, and director Michel Gondry is serving up plenty for his fans. His long brewing Noam Chomsky documentary, "Is The Tall Man Happy?" has started screening and later on this year, he'll deliver the whimsical "Mood Indigo." But before that, the writer/director will help usher in summer with "The We And The I," another interesting gear change for Gondry that finds him working with non-actors, in a unique story that follows a group of teenagers on a city bus on the last day of school.

But the movie is also a distinct tale that hums with the energy of the Bronx, and this exclusive featurette offers a fascinating insight into how the project came together. From the initial seeds of an idea by Gondry, to working with community center The Point and the range of young people who came on to take roles in the film, the featurette displays both the excitement and risk involved with the movie, and even some of the uncertainty with how it would all be pulled off. But Gondry and his enthusiastic cast and crew got the job done, and after a premiere in Cannes last year, it's making its way to theaters.

"The We And The I" opens in limited release on Friday, March 8th. Watch below to see how it all happened.
