It's a simple story so I'll tell it now. Cat named Shrimp is abducted by alien who becomes a sushi chef at the cafe/headquarters of Shrimp's search party. "Space Sushi," we call it. And we made it ("we" being Jen Golum, 12 of Paris' unemployed and myself) at Michel Gondry's exhibit at the Centre Pompidou. As per his movie, Be Kind Rewind, Gondry wanted groups of strangers to make lo-fi movies with the provided sets, props and cameras.
Cast in order of appearance:
Me in a lab coat: Here I am as alien supervillain, Chef. I feel so vulnerable in front of you people.
Distressed Female with bob: Shrimp's owner.
Detective G: This bit of surrealist cinema begins with a secretary in a feather boa and ends with Detective G handing himself a wad of cash and taking the case. You can see him pull the money from his own shirt-pocket. Does he keep money in there to bribe himself should customers turn up? This reminds me of those donkeys that endlessly follow a carrot tied to a stick.
The Intruder: Just as Hitchcock insisted on making cameos in his movies, so too does this man (who appears only as a bald spot) hiding behind Detective's desk. You'll see him pinch a book from Detective's jacket pocket. He is the one who made the whole thing truly avante garde.
