In 1985, young German filmmaker Peter Braatz was invited by David Lynch to Wilmington, North Carolina, to document the making of his new film. Over the following two months, Peter was given unrestricted access to set, cast, crew and director, collating hours of behind the scenes footage, in depth interviews, and thousands of photographs. The resulting No Frank In Lumberton film, released in 1988 with highly limited distribution, has never been commercially released. Over 70% of the footage collected on set was never ever used. UNTIL NOW.
Featuring exclusively never-before-seen footage, the feature length Blue Velvet Revisited finally offers the most intimate insight into one of the greatest films of the 1980s, and one of the world’s greatest ever directors. Described by Braatz as “a meditation on a movie”, the film explores every detail of Lynch’s world through an intoxicating combination of impressionistic montage, interview extracts and sound recordings taken on set, all set to a glorious soundtrack composed and performed by Cult With No Name, Tuxedomoon, and John Foxx.
“A quietly mesmerizing sensory experience, with a distinctive rhythm and look that makes it a stand-alone artwork rather than a mimetic mirror of its subject.” – Hollywood Reporter
