David Lynch: The Art Life

Documentary 1h 27m 2016

Aroview: An essential portrait of film-making iconoclast David Lynch, who takes us on an intimate journey from his childhood in idyllic small town America to the dark streets of Philadelphia. Tracing events that helped shape one of cinema’s most enigmatic directors, the viewer is also treated to generous insights about his art, music and early films.

As Lynch states “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them, even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.” We’re invited in and given a private view from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as Lynch retells personal stories from his past that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus, only to fade again into the past, leaving an indelible mark on Lynch, the artist.
