Six Men Getting Sick / The Alphabet / The Grandmother

Film screenings in the frame of the "Small Stories by David Lynch" exhibition

Location : Ratskeller exhibition space (entrance : rue du Curé)


In the framework of the exhibition Small Stories by David Lynch, Cercle Cité invites you to weekly screenings of early short films by David Lynch.


His first ever film, shot in 1967 and titled Six Men Getting Sick, visualizes the passage from painting and sculpture to the moving image. While this work reveals the multimedia potential later developed in Lynch’s multidisciplinary artistic Œuvre, it is also his first introduction to the medium of film, while he was studying at the Art Academy in Philadelphia.


The 1968 film The Alphabet stars his first wife Peggy Reavey and is based on her niece having a nervous nightmare of the alphabet.


The Grandmother from 1970 is the first production by Lynch that is of an important length and was filmed on the third floor of his house, transformed into a film set.

By including these very early film works, the exhibition Small Stories by David Lynch conceived in the context of the Luxembourg City Film Festival 2023, thematizes Lynch’s initiation to film when he was primarily working as an artist, while showing his artistic practice when today, he is a praised filmmaker.
