BLUE VELVET REVISITED

BLUE VELVET REVISITED

In 1985, David Lynch invited a young German filmmaker named Peter Braatz onto the set of his latest production, Blue Velvet. Over the next couple of months, Braatz recorded hours of footage, shot thousands of photographs and conducted numerous interviews with the cast and crew. For over thirty years, the majority of this material has gone unseen. But now, […] like a longforgotten dream, Blue Velvet Revisited takes the viewer on a mysterious journey from which one emerges with more questions than answers. And what could be more Lynchian than that? (Michael Blyth, BFI London Film Festival)

PETER BRAATZ, born in Solingen in 1959, is an award-winning German editor, director, and punk singer, also known as Harry Rag. He studied at the DFFB – German Film and Television Academy Berlin. In 2005, CROSSING EUROPE dedicated its Tribute section to Peter Braatz’s comprehensive œuvre. // Films (selection): Der wunderbare Mandarin (1985, short; CE’05), Ich sende aus dem All (I’m Transmitting from the Universe, 1994, short doc; CE’05), Tamikrest (2012), Champagne Twist (2014, short), Die neuen Fenster für die Kathedrale von Reims (2015, short), Blue Velvet Revisited (2016, doc)
