Suzette, Michel Gondry's aunt, was a school teacher from 1952 to 1986
and she tells Michel how it was to be a teacher by then in a rural and
isolated part of France. But little by little, Michel discovers some family
stories he was totally unaware of and uses his camera to explore it in a
subtle but very emotional way.

Michel Gondry began his filmmaking career directing music videos for such artists
as The White Stripes, The Rolling Stones, Beck, and Daft Punk, among others. In
2001, Gondry made his feature-film directorial debut Human Nature from a
screenplay from Charlie Kaufman. After working with Kaufman again on the
Academy Award-winning Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gondry went on
to write and direct the films The Science of Sleep and Be Kind Rewind, and direct
the documentary concert film Dave Chappelle's Block Party. DVD collections of
Gondrys exemplary music videos and commercials were released in 2003 and
2009. He has recently authored a guide for DIY filmmaking entitled Youll Like
This Film Because Youre In It: The Be Kind Rewind Protocol and a comic
book We Lost the War but Not the Battle, both published by Picturebox. He is
currently in pre-production on The Green Hornet, a feature film about the iconic
superhero that will star Seth Rogen, to be released in the summer of 2010 by
Columbia Pictures.
