Friday, July 7, 7 p.m.
Whitsell Auditorium

The inaugural screening of NW Film Center’s David Lynch retrospective starts with one of Lynch’s earliest films, a difficult film that might be a metaphor for anxieties about fatherhood, or might be an imagist film with characters like the Lady in the Radiator and the Man in the Planet.

Will also be screening Lynch’s early short films: Six Men Getting Sick (1966), The Amputee vols. 1 & 2 (1974), The Alphabet (1968) and The Grandmother (1970).
