Directed by David Lynch, LOST HIGHWAY follows a bizarre encounter at a party, where a jazz saxophonist is framed for the murder of his wife and sent to prison, where he inexplicably morphs into a young mechanic and begins leading a new life. Starring Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, and Balthazar Getty this film came out in 1997 during the time David Lynch was experimenting with non-linear surrealist style.
Following the screening there will be a moderated discussion by David Spolum.
