The Log Lady from Twin Peaks is now getting a documentary of her own
Lynch and Green previously collaborated on the documentary David Lynch Presents: I Don’t Know Jack which was a tribute to Eraserhead actor Jack Nance
The ever-so-iconic Log Lady from Twin Peaks who was immortalized by the talented Catherine E Coulson is now getting a documentary of her own. Despite acting in several films and TV series throughout her career, Coulson is most popularly known for her Log Lady character in David Lynch's Twin Peaks franchise.
Filmmaker Richard Green, who played The Magician in Lynch's Mulholland Drive, and has also collaborated with Lynch several times in the past, has announced a documentary all about Coulson and the legacy she left behind in the form of the Log Lady.
The feature-length documentary, I Know Catherine, The Log Lady, is going to be the only authorized documentary about Coulson, IndieWire reported. Green has lunched an official Kickstarter campaign in an attempt to raise funds for the documentary ahead of its production.
Sadly, exactly four days after filming her last scene on Twin Peaks: The Return, Coulson passed away from cancer. The documentary will showcase her life, her portrayal of The Log Lady and also her work as one of the first women in the International Cinematographer’s Guild.
The documentary got a thumbs up from David Lynch and the creator of Twin Peaks has given the documentary his blessings besides agreeing to participate in interviews for the movie.
Lynch and Coulson had met in 1971 and soon she was part of the cast of his directorial debut Easerhead.
“Viewers will learn a lot about Coulson and appreciate her as a human being,” Lynch said about the documentary. “She is the one that really should be appreciated.”
This isn't the first time that Lynch and Green have come together for a documentary, though. In 2002, they collaborated on David Lynch Presents: I Don’t Know Jack, which was a tribute to Eraserhead actor Jack Nance.
Similarly, I Know Catherine, The Log Lady will be a tribute to the work of Catherine Coulson.
