Interview Project

Posted by: admin In: Creative Review

In a feat of self-explanatory titling, David Lynch has just launched Interview Project. It is, as the filmmaker states in his video intro, “a road trip where people have been found and interviewed.” Taking in 20,000 miles across the US, a new film will be up online every three days…

Despite Lynch’s hilarious misgivings concerning watching films on the small screen, Interview Project’s natural home is clearly the internet.

Viewiers can watch each short film online and also follow the route of the filmmakers as they trek the 20,000 miles from the US west coast to east (and back) in 70 days.

Lynch says that “the people who were interviewed – each… was different” and hopes that the films will offer viewers the chance to “meet these people.” So far so vague, but this is partly the attraction of Lynch’s project.

From the pseudo-quaint welcoming of the viewer who has “tuned in” to Interview Project, Lynch introduces the first of the films: Jess interviewed in Needles, California.

Jess talks briefly about his life, his regrets and, in the most poignant line of the film, reveals that his ex-wife “liked drugs and other men better than me”.

With 121 interviews filmed so far (all billed as Coming Soon on the site) no doubt there will be some more surprises along the way.
