This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Michel Gondry. His films include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), a second collaboration with screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. The film echoed Gondry's work in other media with its arresting mix of state-of-the-art visual effects and more DIY aesthetic. He also wrote and directed The Science of Sleep (2006). The interview covered topics such as how making a film based on his own screenplay affected Gondry's creativity; how much The Science of Sleep was drawn from instances in his own life; the role played by Gael Garcia Bernal in the film; and whether Gondry delves into his own unconscious a great deal for his work.

Keywords:   Michel Gondry, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, interviews, film directors, filmmakers, filmmaking
