Dali & Beyond Film Series: Eraserhead
September 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Dali & Beyond Film Series features an eclectic selection of films – both familiar and fantastic – with monthly themes ranging from horror, experimental and psychological to kid-friendly and world cinema. In September we are showcasing the well-coiffed director David Lynch, who continues the legacy of surrealism and walks the line between the mainstream and the avant-garde.
Henry resides alone in a bleak apartment surrounded by industrial gloom. When he discovers that an earlier fling with Mary X left her pregnant, he marries the expectant mother and has her move in with him. Things take a decidedly strange turn when the couple’s baby turns out to be a bizarre lizard-like creature that won’t stop wailing. Other characters, including a disfigured lady who lives inside a radiator, inhabit the building and add to Henry’s troubles.
