Director: David Lynch

cinematograph: Frederick Elmes, music by Angelo Badalamenti, written by David Lynch, edited by Duwayne Dunham

Equally entertaining and thought-provoking, Wild at Heart, which won the Palme d’Or at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival and has since become a cultic classic, was an important stage in the director’s career.

Drawing on different traditional genres and employing a richness of cultural references, the story is centred around the love of social rebel Sailor (Nicolas Cage) and Lulu (Laura Dern). The two need to flee when her mother, who is set against their relationship, hires contract killers to eliminate Sailor.

Introduction by filmhistorian Balázs Varga.

David Lynch is one of the most original contemporary film directors. His untameable imagination, special outlook, and distinctive humour have amalgamated into an unmistakable style. Apropos of the Budapest Photo Festival’s exhibition, David Lynch: Small Stories, the Budapest Spring Festival salutes the director’s unique cinematic universe with a series of screenings that presents four of his films, some of them rarely shown, the others recently digitally remastered.

It is not recommended for viewing by persons under 18.

Tickets: HUF 1800
