In 2008, the legendary New York video store Kim’s Video closed and entrusted its impressive 55 000-strong VHS collection to the Sicilian town of Salemi, on condition that the rental service would continue. Two documentary filmmakers decide to check on the spot to verify compliance with the conditions. They have little idea of the incredible adventures awaiting them.
Kim’s Video is a mind-bending documentary about the exploits of two hunters of lost-VHS tapes who end up confronting the local police and mafia. Their wild odyssey is punctuated by the hilarious and the unexpected appearances of such individuals as David Lynch, Jacky Chan and Jean-Luc Godard.
