BLUE VELVET REVISITED | Cinedelphia Film Festival – April 13-29, 2017

The 2017 CFF presents the Philly Premiere of BLUE VELVET REVISITED!

In 1985, a young German filmmaker Peter Braatz was invited by David Lynch to Wilmington, North Carolina, to document the making of his new film.  Over the following two months, Peter was given unrestricted access to set, cast, crew and director, collating hours of behind the scenes footage, in depth interviews, and thousands of photographs. The resulting ‘No Frank In Lumberton’ film, released in 1988 with highly limited distribution, has never been commercially released.  Over 70% of the footage collected on set was never ever used.  UNTIL NOW.
