In 1985, Peter Braatz was still a young German photographer and film student who managed to get authorization to document the shooting of a little independent film called Blue Velvet in super 8. Three decades later, the director has recovered all this material, putting together a sort of making-of con with it, halfway between a cinematic essay and daydreaming, navigating the intricacies of David Lynch’s masterpiece.
Besides making different documentaries, he was assistant director for Wim Wenders, and has made music videos for groups like Crime & the City Solution or Tamikrest.
