The Films of David Lynch @ SIFF Egyptian

The wizard of film 🎞

📸: SIFF

Runs June 16th thru July 6th

Genius? Mad man? #1 Laura Dern fan? David Lynch is all things but most importantly he’s one of the greatest directors of our time. For over forty years, Lynch has crawled inside our heads and fiddled with our subconscious. Now it’s time to turn the tables and peek inside his brain. SIFF will show all ten feature films and six shorts directed by Lynch, daring you to journey into the twisted depths of his filmography. 

Kicking off the series is Lynch/Oz, a new documentary that explores the influence of The Wizard of Oz on Lynch’s filmmaking. After you understand Lynch’s connection and obsession with the great and powerful Oz, you can dive deep into the rest of his films. Trust the person behind the curtain at SIFF as they guide you through the hits, presented at the beautiful SIFF Egyptian. See his rarely screened films (like Elephant Man) and unsung gems (like Straight Story) that deserve the big screen treatment.
