David Lynch in Conversation
With Paul Holdengräber

"I'm walking down the street. There are people in the street. There is someone you fancy. And you turn the corner. And there she is. No two ways about it. She is the idea. You are in love. And she is the story."
—David Lynch

David Lynch—the mastermind behind The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive (each of which garnered him an Oscar nomination for Best Director) and the legendary television series Twin Peaks—makes a rare public appearance at BAM. The visionary filmmaker discusses his many passions, including painting, music, Transcendental Meditation, and, of course, film, and shares stories about his creative process in this conversation with New York Public Library’s director of public programs Paul Holdengräber.
