AEFF17 David Lynch: The Art Life + Eraserhead9th May, 2017
The excellent documentary examines a side of Lynch we perhaps know less of; his visual art practice. Here we are given a peek from the inside as Lynch himself describes his practice, ideas, motivations and unique perspective on his craft and life. More than just a biopic the film takes us on an absorbing journey through the 60’s and 70’s American art scene ending with the beginning of the Eraserhead shoot. Followed by Lynch’s 1977 classic Eraserhead. Part nightmare, part horror film, part visual art, part postapocalyptic social commentary, Eraserhead is utterly timeless.
