David Lynch: The Man from Another Place

At the Pacific Film Archive.


Director David Lynch has come to be synonymous with all that is surrealist and disturbing, achieving through his body of dreamy work his own adjectival term — “Lynchian.” Well, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (2155 Center St.) is hosting a literally “lynchian” weekend by playing some of Lynch’s most well-known works. The series starts on Friday, August 19, with Mulholland Drive, continues with Blue Velvet and Eraserhead on Saturday, August 20, and culminates with a free documentary screening of A Shadow History of the Lynchian: Oddities and Marginalia and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me on Sunday, August 21. Through all five screenings, Dennis Lim, author of David Lynch: The Man from Another Place, will be present to introduce the films. He will hold a book signing before Mulholland Drive, and copies of the book will be available for purchase in the museum store.
