"Noam Chomsky and Michel Gondry are "a charmingly unpredictable, appealing match...This is a movie that celebrates the life of a great mind and makes a case for the mind that knows less but keeps on asking."
--Manohla Dargis, New York Times

French director Michel Gondry applies his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky. Riveting, lively, complex, intimate, and exuberant, this film uses drawings to make complex ideas more accessible. The result is not only a dazzling, vital portrait of one of the foremost thinkers of modern times, but also a beautifully animated work of art. Gondry is best known for his films "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "Dave Chappelle's Block Party," and more.

Benefit for aid to children in Gaza.
