Today (June 1), surrealist film maker David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Dr, Twin Peaks) will launch and present 'Interview Project' a 121 part documentary series featuring 3-5 minute interviews with ordinary American's all over the country.
The project has been commissioned by Lynch and sponsored by his Absurda Productions and is being distributed through his site, davidlynch.com. A team of filmmakers have travelled through America, covering the states, gathering 121 parts of personal histories by the people who really matter and make up the country.
Episode One is due to be released on launch day, with a new one appearing every three days, that is till next June (2010).
For an Lynchian preview of the project check the video below:
I would recommend taking a look at this project and following it because it could question, if done properly, what it means and what it takes to make up a person. As a compilation of histories are put together, we are able to look back where we came from and what people have had to go through. It's inspiring, sometimes sad and at others happy but at the end of it, it would have been a journey that all viewers would have been on together, through America and through the personal spirit.
