“There was no plan… the people who were interviewed, each was different…. The team found the people driving along the roads, going into bars, going into different locations, and there they were. The people told their story.”
David Lynch, Author, Interview Project
In his Interview Project, director David Lynch’s (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) team drove across the United States to find people to interview. During the 70 days that the project was active, the team travelled 20,000 miles and conducted 121 interviews. Subjects were found randomly—in bars, on the sides of roads—and encouraged to talk about whatever was on their mind. Interviews range from Suzy of Abington, VA, who discussed her family tree removal business, to Kelly of Cushing, Oklahoma, who spoke about his struggle to find food, to Kee of Tuba City, AZ, who talked about his life on a Navajo reservation. While the project was active, conversations were posted online once every three days; today, website visitors can sort interviews by subject name or their location.
