When a young man discovers his girlfriend is pregnant, the responsibilities and pressures of fatherhood unfurl around him in spectacularly surreal fashion. A master of challenging content and form, David Lynch here created a radical, raw and wild first feature. Shot in striking black and white, with oppressive, industrial-landscape production design and equally unsettling sound design, Eraserhead is a unique and disturbing nightmare – Lynch at his most unfiltered.

Content warning: Contains strong gore and disturbing surreal imagery.

The screening of Eraserhead on Monday 1 July 20:40 will feature an extended intro to the Discomfort Movies season from season curator Kimberley Sheehan.
