David Lynch- Interview Projects
This is a perfect concept, that could keep me watching forever.
David Lynch is collecting short documentary interviews with people all across the United States. Not famous people, not movie stars, not politicians (although I suppose all of those types MIGHT make their way in).
No, the interviews are with good old fashioned humans.
The projects aren't officially launched till June, and you can sign up for email reminders here.
And a preview of the projects can be watched here. This preview piece is touching, charming, heartbreaking, and thought provoking. I can't wait to see more.
I really like where this project is coming from- a celebration of basic humanity, and the simple interest we all have in what makes others tick.
And I also like that at least from this preview clip, there's nothing ironic, smarmy, or "cool" about it all. It's honest, heartfelt, and a little bit weird. Just like life.
Thanks to my wife Jen for tipping me off to this!
