« Sometimes ideas, like men, jump up and say ‘hello’. They introduce themselves, these ideas, with words. Are they words? These ideas speak so strangely. All that we see in this world is based on someone’s ideas. Some ideas are destructive, some are constructive. Some ideas can come in the form of a dream. »
The Log Lady in Twin Peaks

In the middle of a wood, on the 5th floor of a supermarket underground car park, under the medicine chest in your grandparents’ bedroom, next to the broken lawn mower in the tool shed, between two hedges on the way to church, passages lie in wait of the surplus movement, the uncontrolled sideways step. The red room grabs you. Your conscience levels get mixed up. Trapped by complete liberty, you’re forced to learn more about yourself.

Inevitably and with scarcely disguised pleasure, innocence will perish, the festival grows up. For its 16th birthday, Black Movie treats itself to a tour of David Lynch’s head. Geneva will be Twin-Peaks and we’re taking you with us, accompanied by the sweet song of the thrush perched on the edge of your balcony.

The installation consisted in the impulse of the atmosphere idea for the festival’s partners and crew, in the design of A5 postcards (donuts), tee-shirts and A1 posters (wood, donuts), cinema screensavers, accessories, flags and stickers inspired by Twin-Peaks Police Department’s logo, in the construction of the Black Lodge and Twin-Peaks portraits of the crew.

In the Black Lodge, you could find a professional photo-shoot session for dogs and their master, mysterious presents from Bob, a daily meeting with the radio Fréquence Banane, a tasting of sake, the “after” of the closing party of the festival and many other strangenesses there.
