(NORTH ADAMS, Mass.) — The final days and hours of Laura Palmer, the fictional character whose murder was the central mystery of the original TV series, “Twin Peaks,” created by filmmaker and visionary David Lynch, will be re-explored in “Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer,” a new film collage with live music in the Hunter Center at MASS MoCA on Friday, October 30, at 8pm.
Commissioned by the David Lynch Foundation, “Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer” is a Twin Peaks junkie’s dream: a new edit mashing up the film — and the missing pieces — surrounding the mysterious last moments in the life of Laura Palmer. The live score is by A Place Both Wonderful and Strange, a dark dance-pop band equally inspired by Lynch and Janet Jackson.
The visual piece is a collage of previously deleted and unreleased footage from character Laura Palmer’s final days. More than just the “deleted scenes” feature found on a collector’s box set, these clips provide greater clues into the murder at the center of the television show and accompanying film.

Hymns, liturgical dance and a wicked tongue lift this antic portrait of a small, struggling congregation to comic heights.
