Kim’s Video follows modern-day cinephile and filmmaker David Redmon on a seemingly quixotic quest to track down the whereabouts of the massive video collection of the now-defunct Kim’s Video, an iconic NYC video rental store which had more than 55,000 rare and beloved movies. Playing with the forms and tropes of cinema, David’s bizarre and increasingly obsessive quest takes him to Sicily, where he becomes entangled in a web of local politics, and to South Korea, where he tracks down the enigmatic Mr. Kim in the hope of influencing the collection’s future. An ode to the love of cinema, this film will strike a chord with anyone who has ever rented a movie.

Their body of work includes Kim’s Video, whereby they play with the forms and tropes of various cinema genres as co-director David Redmon sets off on a quest to find a legendary lost video collection of 55,000 movies in Sicily. They have also made four ‘animal ethnography’ films based in the world of donkeys and funded by the Leverhulme Trust: Sanctuary (2017), Do Donkeys Act? (2017), Choreography (2014), and Herd (2015); two dream/memory cinema poems, Sentient 1 & 2 (2015/2016); a 6-minute snowbound ballet mécanique, Neige (2016); a suite of U.S. post-industrialisation-themed films set inside three interconnected factories on the coast of Prospect Harbor, Maine: Downeast (2012), Night Labor (2013), and Kingdom of Animal (2012); a feature documentary about the labyrinthine world of teenage modelling in which a New York based scout recruits Siberian teenagers to the Tokyo model market Girl Model (2011); a film linking China and New Orleans through the globalised manufacture of cheap throwaway goods for American leisure pursuit, Mardi Gras: Made in China (2005) and two ‘carnivalesque’, character-driven films set in Louisiana: Kamp Katrina (2007) and Invisible Girlfriend (2009). Lastly Intimidad (2008), set on the U.S./Mexico border, is a longitudinal love story about family relationships and the meaning of ‘home’ which has been described as “a documentary fairytale of truly humbling proportions.”
