Born in 1946, David Lynch is an American screenwriter and director. He makes his first feature, Eraserhead, in 1977, which persuades Mel Brooks to ask him to direct The Elephant Man (1980), nominated for eight Oscars. This was followed by Dune (1984), adapted from Frank Herbert’s eponymous novel, Blue Velvet (1986) and Wild at Heart (1990) which wins the Golden Palm in Cannes. He returns to the Croisette in 1992 with Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, a big screen adaptation of his cult TV series, Twin Peaks (1990-91), and again with The Straight Story (1999) and Mulholland Drive (2001), which wins him the Prix de la mise en scène.
