Happy Birthday to Academy Award winning screenwriter, director and producer Michel Gondry, born on this day in 1963.

He began his career making music videos for French band Oui Oui and caught the attention of Icelandic artist Björk, who asked him to direct the video for Human Behaviour. This led to a long lasting working relationship with Gondry directing eight more videos for her.

He made his feature film debut in 2001 with Human Nature, a screwball comedy that was screened out of competition at the 54th Cannes International Film Festival and received mixed reviews from the critics.

Gondry’s second film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) earned him the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award and he is also known for the films Dave Chappelle’s Block Party (2005), The Science of Sleep (2006), Be Kind Rewind (2008), The Green Hornet (2011), The We and the I (2012) and Mood Indigo (1012).
