Lost in the Woods: New Narratives in Twin Peaks

Thursday 26 February 2015 // Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle // 6:30pm - 10:30pm // 

Featuring a screening of Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), Lost in the Woods is evening of performance, film and discussion, exploring how new narratives can be created and interwoven into pre-existing landscapes in film and television.

Kicking off with a food buffet and Toby Phips Lloyd's performance Wet Your Whistle: A guide to drinking in Twin Peaks (2014), the screening was followed by a panel discussion with Lloyd joined by co-editor of the pop culture, TV and Cinema blog Clarissa Explains F*ck AllAmy Roberts, and film writer and Lynch-lover Cayley James.

The panel explored how artists, writers and filmmakers have taken inspiration from both real life and fictional sources in their work. The conversation attempted to re-evaluate Lynch's poorly-received prequel to the popular television series, given that Lynch is currently working on the highly anticipated third series of Twin Peaks.
