MICROBE AND GASOLINE BY MICHEL GONDRY
2015 - France - 114 min
In French with English subtitles
The Cultural Services of the French Embassy presents the 2015 film Microbe and Gasoline by Michel Gondry.
In his most personal comedy, French director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind) portrays the friendship between two male adolescents looking for adventure and freedom.
Microbe (Daniel), a shy, aspiring artist, has trouble making friends at school until he meets Gasoline (Theo), a likeminded outcast. Neither of them really fit in with their own families and they dream about hitting the road. Together, they hatch a plan to build a car and spend their summer on an epic trip across France.
“If you’re my friend, you’re an independent spirit”, Theo tells Daniel, as the pair of outsiders travel the country. Mostly inspired by Michel Gondry‘s childhood, this film celebrating the power of imagination is also the story of an emancipation.
Microbe and Gasoline will be followed by an End of the Year Reception.
Online registration is required for this screening.
