In the "Be Kind Rewind" exhibition, a collaboration between film director Michel Gondry and the Deitch Projects gallery in New York City, participants are given cameras, costumes, props and sets to create their own movies. The project grew out of Gondry's latest film, "Be Kind Rewind," about video store workers who accidentally erase all the movies in the shop and decide to remake them themselves, which they call "sweding."
These tinfoil costumes were featured in the movie. Gondry encourages people who want to participate in the exhibition to gather a group of friends, make an appointment (by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org), and then spend about two hours making a film.
