They asked David Lynch only one question: "Why do you make movies?", and he answered: "I like to make films because I like to go into another world. I like to get lost in another world. And film to me is a magical medium that makes you dream...allows you to dream in the dark. It's just a fantastic thing, to get lost inside the world of film."
Besides the limited length of 52 seconds (one shot, not edited), the films had to be shot in "natural" light and without sound (just like the Lumière brothers had to work 100 years ago).
