Lauded with critical acclaim at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival and the 2016 Venice Film Festival, 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 series of mystery-horror 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. Thunderbird Releasing.
