{The Thorn in the Heart}


Oscilloscope Laboratories acquired the distribution rights to Michel Gondry's documentary The Thorn in the Heart (L'Epine dans le Coeur), a personal look at the life of Suzette Gondry (Michel's aunt) and her relationship with her son Jean-Yves.

Michel examines Suzette's years as a school teacher and her life in rural France. During the course of filming the documentary, Michel unearths new family stories and uses his camera (and shabby chic stop motion animation sets) to explore them in a subtle way.

The Thorn in the Side will release in select theaters May 14th.
