The Alphabet by David Lynch

A simple narrative structure relating a symbolically rendered expression of childhood and aging. (4 minutes). The idea for "The Alphabet" (1968) came from Lynch's wife, Peggy Reavey, [1], a painter whose niece, according to Lynch in Chris Rodley's Lynch on Lynch book, "was having a bad dream one night and was saying the alphabet in her sleep in a tormented way. So that's sort of what started 'The Alphabet' going."
