David Redman and Ashley Sabin’s playful documentary tells the strange story of the legendary New York Video Shop, Kim’s Video.
Playing with cinematic genres from cinema verite to heist movie, the filmmakers set out to track down its lost archive of 55,000 tapes ending up in the unlikely location of Salemi, a small village in Sicily.
Despite an initial bid to use it to boost tourism, the collection’s whereabouts are shrouded in mystery. A source of film education for scores of enthusiastic ex-members, the filmmakers use their quixote quest to fashion an ode to the love of cinema.
