Over the course of the spring 2013 semester, we will present a complete series retrospective of ABC’s landmark 1990 primetime drama, Twin Peaks, created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. The critically acclaimed series and pop culture favorite had everyone in America asking, “Who killed Laura Palmer?” and the subsequent exploration into the fictional small town of Twin Peaks captivated the television audience for two seasons. Throughout the spring, episodes of the series will be screened followed by in-depth Q&As with key cast and crew from the production. These screenings will culminate with a special 35MM presentation of the 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as a prequel to the series.
There will be a 30-minute intermission between the Episodes 2.17 and 2.18, during which coffee and donuts will be served.
