Lynch's Straight Stories

Lynch's Straight Stories
Filmmaker David Lynch made his name with surrealistic journeys into the subconscious, but there's also his sweet, sentimental side fascinated by the effluvium of honest, unpretentious folks and their day-to-day lives - the side that made the beautiful G-rated 1999 film The Straight Story. On June 1, he's launching Interview Project (interviewproject.davidlynch.comK), a yearlong series in 121 parts. Every three days, he'll offer up a short film profile of an average American: hopes, dreams, struggles and accomplishments. Not famous, not notable, just folks - and they promise to be as beautiful and heartbreaking as his features are strange and thought provoking.
