The Mac and Belfast Film Festival present Eraserhead with a live score from French band Coffin (Cercueil).
Eraserhead is magnified by Coffin’s hypnotic electronic music, involving drones, ambient sound waves and labyrinthic pop. A contemplative, organic, singular and striking live soundtrack. “The words through the music, the music through the picture, Cercueil’s dreamlike orchestration reinterprets Lynch’s nightmare in a dizzying weightlessness.”
David Lynch’s 1977 debut feature, Eraserhead, is both a lasting cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerising black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes and Herbert Cardwell, evocative sound design, and unforgettably enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey continues to haunt American cinema like no other film.
