Lost Highway

With novelist and screenwriter Barry Gifford in person, followed by a reception with music from DJ and performing artist Amber Martin

Organized by guest curator Jonathan Caouette

Dir. David Lynch. 1997, 140 mins. 35mm. With Patricia Arquette, Bill Pullman, Robert Blake, Balthazar Getty. Rarely revived, Lost Highway may be one of David Lynch’s greatest films, blending elements of film noir, horror, surrealism, and nightmare logic in an enigmatic story about a free-jazz saxophonist who is framed for his wife’s murder and emerges in a new identity as a gas-station attendant. Screenwriter, novelist, and poet Barry Gifford co-wrote the script with Lynch after collaborating on Wild at Heart. His deep knowledge of film noir and B-movies adds greatly to the film’s atmosphere.     

Filmmaker and Museum member Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) will introduce Barry Gifford who will participate in a brief discussion before the screening.

Refreshments will be provided by Tacuba and SingleCut Beersmiths. Located directly across the street from the Museum, Tacuba is a newly opened, cantina-inspired Mexican restaurant from chef/owner Julian Medina (Toloache) and partner Louis Skibar.

Free screening for members at the Film Lover level and above. This event is currently at capacity. Please email [email protected] to be added to the wait list.
