(USA, 108 min)
Directed by Alexandre Philippe
No film has penetrated the public consciousness more than the Wizard of Oz, a classic that has been seen by millions of people around the world. Alexandre Philippe’s clip-rich documentary explores how the film is not only a seminal point of inspiration for David Lynch but how its ideas and imagery have permeated the entire history of cinema. Presented as six visual essays by five contemporary filmmakers and one film critic (including camp auteur John Waters and filmmakers Karyn Kusama and David Lowery), each artist offers their own homage to the classic and invites us to journey down the rabbit hole of our collective cultural consciousness and into the mind-bending cinematic oeuvre of David Lynch.
Director Alexandre Philippe expected to be in attendance.
