Behind the curtain: the artist at work
A film that gives us a rare glimpse into the fascinating mind of the man who created such visionary classics as Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Wild At Heart, The Elephant Man and more..
Compiled from over two years of footage, the film is an intimate portrait of Lynch's creative process as he completes his latest film, INLAND EMPIRE. We are with him as he discovers the beauty in ideas, leading us on a journey through the abstract, which ultimately unveils his cinematic vision.
The director of the documentary immersed himself in David Lynch's world, living and working at Lynch's home for over two years. His unobtrusive style has captured a personal side of David Lynch not seen before.
The film reveals Lynch not only as one of the most original and compelling directors of contemporary film, but also as an artist who continues to explore and experiment in countless mediums. His enthusiasm is infectious; inspiring us to tap into the well of creativity that Lynch believes we all have.
The director graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in psychology then moved to LA where he became interested in filmmaking. After living there for 3 years he left for New York City and began working on television commercials. He has been practicing transcendental meditation for 7 years and is an avid proponent of its benefits to the creative process.
