The themes, images, and cultural vernacular of Victor Fleming’s THE WIZARD OF OZ continue to haunt David Lynch’s art and filmography—from his very first short, THE ALPHABET, to his latest series, TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN. Arguably, no filmmaker has so consistently drawn inspiration—consciously or unconsciously—from a single work. Is David Lynch trapped in the land of Oz? If so, can we derive a new appreciation for Lynch’s body of work from taking a closer look at how it intersects and communicates with THE WIZARD OF OZ? In turn, do MULHOLLAND DRIVELOST HIGHWAY, or THE ELEPHANT MAN have something to say about the enduring resonance of one of America’s most beloved classic movies? Through six distinct perspectives and narrated by some of contemporary cinema’s most exciting voices, LYNCH/OZ will take us down the proverbial rabbit hole, help us re-experience and re-interpret THE WIZARD OF OZ by way of David Lynch, to deliver a whole new appreciation for Lynch’s symbolism through the lens of his greatest influence.

 

In advance of the June 2 opening of LYNCH/OZ, IFC Center presents a weeklong revival of THE WIZARD OF OZ on May 12-18 and a retrospective of Lynch’s films on May 19-June 8.
