50th Directors’ Fortnight May 9-19, 2018

The We and the I

Fortnight 2012, Feature film, 1h43

Synopsis

The We and the I is the heartfelt and comical story of the final bus ride home for a group of young high school students and graduates. As kids depart the bus for the last time, we get to learn about these graduates as they step into the world – their love, their conflicts, their despair and their hope.

Director

Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry’s first feature was the 2001 Human Nature, which was shown at Cannes. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind won him an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, shared with Charlie Kaufman and Pierre Bismuth. Next came The Science of Dreams and Be Kind Rewind, shown at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals. He directed an episode of Tokyo (Cannes 2008) and The Thorn in my Heart (Cannes 2009). In 2010 he adapted The Green Hornet then shot The We and the I in 2011 in the Bronx.
