David Lynch: The Art Life

14 Jul 201730 Aug 2017

Lauded with critical acclaim at the BFI London Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival in 2016, David Lynch: The Art Life is an intimate portrait of a master director, screenwriter and producer.

Known for cult classics The Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986) and Mulholland Drive (2001)—and with a revival of the mystery-horror series Twin Peaks (1990-1991, 2017) on the way—David Lynch is one of the most prolific filmmakers working in the industry today. The formative years of his life are explored in unprecedented depth, from his idyllic upbringing in small town America to the dark streets of Philadelphia, recounting the events that helped shape one of cinema’s most enigmatic and revered directors.

Narrated by Lynch himself, the documentary infuses his art, music and films in striking fashion, shining a light into his unique world and offering audiences a greater understanding of the artist as well as the man.
