As part of Painting in Perpetual Motion, a series of conversations, workshops, screenings and discussions commissioned by mima and Northern Film and Media, the Star and Shadow are hosting their own intellectual tribute to David Lynch on Thursday 26th February. Featuring a screening of the 1992 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Lost In The Woods is an evening of performance, film and discussion that explores how new narratives might be created within pre-existing films and television programmes.

Toby Phips Lloyd’s performance Wet Your Whistle: A Guide to Drinking in Twin Peaks kicks off the events, followed by a panel discussion featuring Lloyd, TV and Cinema blogger Clarissa Explains F*ck All, and Lynch lover and film writer Cayley James.

Taking into consideration that Lynch is currently working on a third series of Twin Peaks (to the delight of his legions of fans), the panel will be exploring how artists, writers and filmmakers have taken inspiration from both real life and fiction in their work. In light of screening Fire Walk With Me, the group will also be chatting about the poorly received film prequel, so you can make our own mind up on the success of the feature-length foray into the town. It’s an evening not to be missed for film buffs and die-hard Lynch fanatics.

Lost in the Woods: New Narratives in Twin Peaks is at the Star and Shadow, Newcastle on Thursday 26th February.
