Momentum grows for award-winning filmmaker David Seiveking's very personal journey from hope to bewilderment David Wants to Fly. In his beautiful visual essay, David tries to follow his hero, David Lynch's fixation on Transcendental Medititation and "yogic flying."
Another premiere is taking place in Vancouver.
David Wants to Fly
Post-screening Q&A with film director
345 Main Street
Directed by David Sieveking
To meet master film director David Lynch in person and talk to him about filmmaking! A dream come true for young David Sieveking, who first finds himself sitting face-to-face with his idol in Spring 2006. The meeting takes place on the periphery of a workshop in the USA where Lynch is giving a talk on the sources of creativity, including transcendental meditation™, a technique the cult filmmaker has reputedly practiced daily for over thirty years. Could TM be the mystery behind Lynch’s dark, inscrutable films? An entirely new chapter in the life of David Sieveking has begun. He takes the personal advice of the great David Lynch and begins to practice TM himself. For the second time, Sieveking discovers a whole new world. But the more research the young filmmaker does, the more discrepancies surface. Throughout the odyssey that follows, Sieveking never loses the sly sense of humor that gives this surprising film its strength, elegance and ambiguous charm.
