'The Cinematic Worlds of David Lynch' explored in fall film screenings at Emory
The filmmaker David Lynch, whether you love or loathe him, stands as one of cinema’s most influential and uncompromising artists.
His films journey into realms of dream-like non-logic, and many show Lynch’s labors of invention in story, photography, lighting, sound design and even music.
This fall, his work is receiving thorough exploration in the Emory film series: “The Cinematic Worlds of David Lynch.” The free screenings are currently underway and continue through Nov. 30.
In this interview, “City Lights” senior producer Kim Drobes discusses the program with Dr. Timonthy Holland, Emory Assistant Professor of Film and Media Studies, and Millie De Chirico, film programmer, writer, historian, and podcaster.
“They called Lynch ‘Jimmy Stewart from Mars,’ and early on, sort of noticed that there was something very unique about this young man and that he could do a lot with very little,” Holland says.
Emory’s fall screening series “The Cinematic Worlds of David Lynch” is ongoing through November 30, and more information is available here.
