For those of you who didn't already know, David Lynch's son Austin Lynch also likes to point cameras at things and tell strange stories. His latest, Gray House, is underway and he needs your support—as all filmmakers, thanks to Spike Lee and Zach Braff, now do—on Kickstarter.
So what's it all about? Here's a little info from the film's press release
The film is an exploration of domestic space that frames a larger conversation about class, identity, consumerism and progress. Equal parts observation and fabrication, Gray House interweaves documentary and narrative footage into a film structure that blurs the lines between fiction and reality.
To do this, Lynch investigates five politically- and socially-charged locations where he either conducts a series of interviews with the people living there or stages scripted dramas in the space. Gray House features: a bait fisherman on the Texas coast, oil worker camps in North Dakota, a couple living on a commune, inmates at a women’s prison in rural Virginia, and a modern home in Southern California.
Lynch explains: “The idea for Gray House began with my interest in these locations. As the project evolved I decided to approach each space in a unique way and to create a film that incorporated both documentary and narrative footage. The film is about the affects of architecture on its inhabitants and the ways that our understanding of reality can be complicated by its representation.”
