Film Series: Eraserhead

1977. USA. Dir: David Lynch. With Jack Nance. 89 min. 35mm print.

 

A new father cares for his inexplicably inhuman child as he navigates the horrors of domestic life in an oppressive industrial landscape. Lynch crafts a surreal world populated by Freudian nightmares: men pulling levers inside of miniature planets, a chipmunk-cheeked woman singing in the radiator, a severed head ground into eraser dust.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5
