David Lynch: The Art Life

Speaking into a vintage microphone from his painting studio in the hills above Hollywood, Lynch takes us on an intimate journey through his youth. He talks about his childhood in small-town America, his family, the awkward teenage years, his anxieties and fears, and the people who helped him become who he is. Lynch recounts the influence his youth had on him as an artist and his subsequent move into filmmaking.

Combining home movies, stock footage, moody artworks and observations of him working on his paintings and sculptures, David Lynch: The Art Life, which premiered at the BFI London Film Festival in 2016, is an immersive and compelling experience. He’s an entrancing storyteller who delivers fascinating anecdotes. And the soundtrack, as you’d expect, is deliciously strange, dark and beautiful.
