David Lynch's Interview Project Probes American Dreams

"In Interview Project's mini–documentaries, filmmakers Austin Lynch and Jason S. sidle up to strangers and ask them piercing questions like 'What were your dreams as a child?' and 'When did you first experience death?'

For the 121–part online series, which launches Monday, the pair logged 20,000 miles criss–crossing the United States over a 70–day stretch, searching for random people to question about American life.

In a filmed introduction to Interview Project, producer David Lynch (Austin's father) says: 'There was no plan, really. The (filmmaking) team found people as they were driving along the roads, going into bars, different locations…. There they were. The people told their stories.'

A new three–to–five minute Interview episode will debut every three days for a year.

Horseplay: Discussing Philip's Work At His Waimate Farm

Horseplay is a short 16mm documentary made by Simon Perkins about the New Zealand painter Philip Trusttum. The film presents a brief snap–shot of the artist and his surroundings at his farm in Waimate. The approach of the documentary makes no attempt to disguise the role of the filmmaker. In this way it pays homage to the Direct Cinema traditions through its use of hand–held camera, voyeuristic shots and off–camera audio.

The film was made in 1990 by: Simon Perkins; Peter Bannan; Vivienne Stone; Peter Evans; Robert Sarkies; Michael Brown; Philip Trusttum; Lee Trusttum; Peter Leech; James Wallace.
