Kim's Video

With the ghosts of cinema past leading his way, cinephile and filmmaker David Redmon sets off on a seemingly quixotic quest to find a legendary lost video collection of 55,000 movies in Sicily.

“A rollicking tale of the inextricable bonds between life and art, and the value of ensuring that the latter remains preserved for future generations.”
- Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

"A film-geek reverie that winds up diving down a rabbit hole of underground intrigue.”
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“Unashamedly quirky but burtsting with the love of film, this is the sort of one-off doc that’s as much about the engaging playfulness of its construction as it is the content."
- Amber Wilkinson, Eye for FIlm

SYNOPSIS: Physical media reigns supreme in KIM’S VIDEO, an elegiac tribute to the iconic video store in New York City that inspired a generation of cinephiles before it mysteriously closed its doors and sent its legendary film archive to a small Sicilian village for “safekeeping.” But what starts as an homage to cinema quickly becomes a rescue mission to ensure the eternal preservation of the beloved video collection.
