The David Lynch ‘Festival of Disruption’ Experience (Stark Insider Video)

A new Stark Insider video is here!

Filmmaker David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, The Elephant Man) hosts a bi-annual arts & music fest held in Los Angeles (October) and Brooklyn (May) each year called Festival of Disruption.

NEW: Watch Stark Insider on Amazon Prime

Lynch curates the line-up himself which features artists, musicians, actors, and others who have been involved in his films and the television series Twin Peaks. Over the weekend the schedule features panel discussions, whimsical exhibits, galleries (typically including Lynch’s very own work), on-stage interviews, film screenings, short films, and, of course, lots of memorabilia and, as they say, merch.

Proceeds benefit the David Lynch Foundation. Also, given David Lynch’s passion for transcendental meditation and, in particular, bringing the idea — which encourages moments of quiet reflection — into disadvantaged schools in L.A. and New York, there’s discussions on the topic led by the foundation’s CEO, Bob Roth.

Any thing we do to someone else, we are, in effect, doing the same thing to our self.

— David Lynch
