Interview project

David Lynch is sponsoring The Interview Project which appears to be filmed by his son (among others). It is stunningly good.

When I first saw the project I assumed they were just going to go around mocking "weird America," given its connection to David Lynch. I was surprised that the depiction is not only not mocking even in the slightest, but treats its subjects with respect, no matter how wacky or mundane. These are more than interviews--they are long photographs.

The interview with Brenda Wray was one of the hardest ones to watch. The interview with Clara, despite its seeming mundaneness, is one of the most inspiring.

  1. Compelling. I love your phrase "long photographs." That's keeper for sure.
