As part of this year’s Manchester International Festival (#MIF19) HOME is being transformed by all things David Lynch, the man behind Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead and many more STARBURST favourites.
From Saturday, July 6th to Sunday, September 29th you’ll be able to see the iconic filmmaker’s entire back catalogue, see an exhibition of his paintings and immerse yourself in the man and his work.
Excited? Of course you are, and there’s so much to see that we’ve broken it down to our top 5 things to do at David Lynch at HOME.
1: My Head Is Disconnected
Known for his films, Lynch is also a prolific artist and My Head Is Disconnected, specially curated for HOME, is the first major UK exhibition of his work. It features over 60 weird and wonderful works dating from the 1960s to the present day. https://homemcr.org/exhibition/david-lynch-my-head-is-disconnected/
And if you like his work…
2: Buy a limited edition print signed by LynchIt’s a rare thing to own a piece of art by one of your favourite filmmakers but HOME has managed to get Lynch to create a limited edition print, signed by Lynch himself. And while you may need to break open your piggy bank to get your hands on one, for people who like to collect, this is a rarity you may want to splash out on. There are only 100 up for grabs. https://homemcr.org/article/signed-limited-edition-prints-by-david-lynch-available-as-part-of-david-lynch-at-home/
3: Remember: It’s a Great Big Wonderful World From his most mainstream cinema, with the likes of The Elephant Man and The Straight Story, right back to Eraserhead and his experimental shorts, Lynch has always been a director with a vision of the world that is, specifically, Lynchian, so much so that we even use his name to describe the work of other filmmakers when their vision is slightly off-kilter. HOME is presenting not only his back catalogue but films he’s cited as an influence on his vision and career, including The Wizard of Oz and Sunset Boulevard. https://homemcr.org/event/its-a-great-big-wonderful-world-david-lynch-film-season/4: See a gig Music has always been a big part of Lynch’s work so he’s created a series of music events, David Lynch Presents, including gigs by Anna Calvi and regular Lynch collaborator, Chrysta Bell. https://homemcr.org/event/david-lynch-presents-anna-calvi-solo-douglas-dare-chrysta-bell/
5: Go to a live video interview with Lynch
He’s a busy man so, having done the hard work in creating everything in the season, Mr Lynch will be interviewed live on stage via a video link, but you can be there. The focus of the event will be public questions so get yourself a ticket if you’ve ever fancied asking about the freaky Eraserhead baby, the man from another place in Twin Peaks or you’re just curious about his outstanding hair...
