In 1985, German filmmaker Peter Braatz contacted David Lynch requesting permission to document Lynch’s latest production. Lynch replied positively. ‘We are making an extremely low-budget movie’, he warned Braatz, ‘so bring lots of money and help us out.’
Granted unrestricted access to the set of Blue Velvet, Braatz recorded hours of super 8 footage, thousands of photographs, raw audio and numerous interviews with the cast and crew (including Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Isabella Rossellini and Dennis Hopper). Thirty years later, this assemblage of unseen material forms the foundation of Blue Velvet Revisited. More a lyrical poem than a conventional documentary, Braatz’s rich archive of material offers an evocative behind-the-scenes ticket to Lynch’s 1986 masterpiece.
