PhilaMOCA will host the Philadelphia Premiere screenings of the new French film THE DREAMLIFE OF DAVID L., a fictionalized account of Lynch's time spent as a student at PAFA.
THE DREAMLIFE OF DAVID L., is a fictional feature film that takes inspiration from a key point in the life of director David Lynch: the time he spent as a student in a fine arts college. Initially attracted to painting, David Lynch ends up choosing the medium of film to express his talent.
Far from being an attempt at biography, this film is an imaginary vision with the action taking place today in the era of cell phones and the internet. The encounters and events that affect a young David L. frequently contain references to the real life director's film and television work and the film itself is shot like a Lynchian nightmare.
THE DREAMLIFE OF DAVID L. is a dreamlike journey that leads the viewer through the meanderings of an atypical art school that fosters the imagination of the most atypical of film directors.
