Kim’s Video

Directed by David Redmon, Ashley Sabin
USA, France, UK
88 minutes
Unclassified 15+
A thoroughly enjoyable, seemingly impossible tale involving a New York video store, 55,000 missing VHS tapes, a sleepy Sicilian town and a Korean businessman. Sundance 2023.
When geeky filmmaker David Redmon moved to the Big Apple, he became obsessed with the legendary Kim’s Video store in Lower Manhattan. This ramshackle treasure trove packed with classic and obscure movies sadly fell victim to changing times and was forced to close. Owner Mr Kim decided to give away the entire collection – free to a good home. But just who took up the offer? Redmon and co-director Ashley Sabin’s quest to find the missing archive takes us to Seoul and Sicily, with stranger-than-fiction results. By turns funny and dumbfounding, Kim’s Video is a charming tribute to the power and endurance of cinema.
A story that plays out like a low-budget caper, replete with corruption, slippery personalities, missing cash and one actual robbery.
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
Unashamedly quirky but bursting with the love of film, this is the sort of one-off doc that’s as much about the engaging playfulness of its construction as it is the content.
Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
