The Elephant Man: 

It’s the story of John Merrick—the genetically disfigured “Elephant Man”—who is rescued from a life as an exploited side-show attraction by a doctor who sees the humanity behind the deformities. Although noted for its evocative black and white cinematography and for John Hurt’s sensitive and powerful performance as Merrick, the film’s emotional landscape derives, as in all of Lynch’s works, from its rich, atmospheric use of sound. In person: Seven time-Academy Award-winning sound designer Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private RyanTitanicFinding Nemo) will introduce the film.
