Janus Contemporaries Announces March 2024 Release

Coming in March: Lynch/OzAlexandre O. Philippe’s inquiry into the rich, sublime, and resonant correspondences between the films of David Lynch and The Wizard of Oz, delivering new appreciations of both.

Lynch/Oz out 3/19

The themes, images, and cultural vernacular of Victor Fleming’s The Wizard of Oz continue to haunt David Lynch’s filmography—from his early short The Alphabet to his recent television series Twin Peaks: The Return. Arguably, no filmmaker has so consistently drawn inspiration—consciously or unconsciously—from a single work. Is Lynch trapped in the Land of Oz? If so, what can we learn about his body of work by taking a closer look at how it intersects and communicates with that legendary fantasy? In turn, what do Lynch’s films have to say about the enduring resonance of one of America’s most beloved classics? Through six distinct perspectives, Alexandre O. Philippe’s Lynch/Oz helps us re-experience and reinterpret The Wizard of Oz by way of David Lynch, delivering new appreciations of both.
