The Blue Velvet Project Goes to Argentina


Rumpus columnist Nicholas Rombes’s The Blue Velvet Project analyzes in marvelous depth 152 still frames from David Lynch’s classic arthouse film.

The series, which originally appeared at Filmmaker magazine’s site, has been translated into Spanish as a book for Argentina’s Mar del Plata film festival. It’s called El Proyecto Terciopelo Azul, and Rombes will be in Buenos Aires for its launch next week.
