David Lynch and Interpol Team Up on Short Film

Three years ago, the members of the band Interpol sat down with filmmaker David Lynch. It was a casual meeting, an “ice breaker,” that paved the way for a future collaboration.

Skip ahead to 2010, and the collaboration begins. Interpol wants to develop visuals to accompany their performance at the 2011 Coachella Festival, and Lynch agrees to take on the job. The result: “I Touch a Red Button Man,” a short animated film that accompanies Interpol’s song “Lights.” The film (originally shown at Coachella) was officially released online yesterday at HuffPo, where the band also talked about the genesis of the project in their own words.

You can find this film listed in the Animation section of our big collection of Free Movies Online.
