A rare glimpse into the fascinating mind of the man who created such classic films as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, and Mulholland Drive, Lynch playfully uses a proxy to disguise its director’s name.
Compiled from over two years and 700 hours of footage, the film is an intimate portrait of Lynch’s creative process as he completes his latest film, Inland Empire. We follow Lynch as he discovers beauty in ideas, leading us through an abandoned Polish factory on a journey through the abstract, which ultimately unveils his cinematic vision. 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. We witness his “hands on” approach to painting, sculpting, music and screenwriting. His enthusiasm is infectious; inspiring us to tap into the well of creativity that Lynch believes we all have.
