Movie Night with Interpol: WILD AT HEART

Thursday, April 5, 2012

We’re pleased to welcome Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino in person to present a new collaboration between the band and legendary filmmaker David Lynch, plus a screening of Lynch’s Cannes-winner WILD AT HEART. A new animated short created by Lynch to accompany Interpol’s song “Lights” from their self-titled fourth album, I TOUCH A RED BUTTON MAN is a hallucinatory black, white and red all over lo-fi extravaganza. Following the screening, Fogarino will discuss the band’s work and take questions from the audience.

To accompany the short, the band selected Lynch’s 1990 Cannes Film Festival winner WILD AT HEART, a personal favorite of all the band members. The feverish story of a star-crossed couple on the lam, Lynch’s delirious paean to l’amour fou (with nods to The Wizard of Oz) boasts Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern as lovers Sailor and Lula, with a supporting cast that includes Diane Ladd, Harry Dean Stanton, Crispin Glover, Isabella Rossellini and Willem Dafoe.
