CineVegas minifestival to honor David Lynch
February 15, 2008 - 10:00 pm
CineVegas just can’t stop honoring David Lynch.
First, officials honored the visionary director with a Vanguard Director Award at the 2004 festival.
And today, CineVegas’ Art House Screening Series launches a two-week Lynch minifest at downtown’s Galaxy Neonopolis multiplex, 450 E. Fremont St.
This weekend’s lineup includes “Lynch,” a new documentary that explores the creative process of the filmmaker behind such works as “Blue Velvet,” “Mulholland Drive” and TV’s “Twin Peaks.” Filmed during a two-year period, the documentary follows Lynch as he works on his most recent movie, “Inland Empire.”
A new 35mm print of “Eraserhead” — Lynch’s surrealistic, unsettling 1977 breakthrough — also will be featured through Feb. 28. Some of the director’s rarely seen short films will screen Saturday and Sunday.
“Inland Empire,” meanwhile, will be shown Feb. 23 and 24.
