David Lynch's "Inland Empire" (2006) is the director's most recent feature film, and in the years since he's been focusing his efforts on online projects, transcendental meditation, visual art and short films in various genres, including documentary and music videos. His new 8-minute documentary on French fine-art printing house Idem Paris is an absorbingly bare-bones, black and white homage to the lithographic process. Watch below.

Lynch recently said in an eloquent interview with the Hollywood Reporter that in order to be enticed back to feature filmmaking he would need to "catch an idea" to "fall in love with": "Feature films I think have become cheap… I’ll tell you. I’m walking down the street. There are people in the street. There is someone you fancy. And you turn a corner. And there she is. No two ways about it. She is the idea. You are in love. And she is the story."
