Being kids at the beginning of the 90’s, we caught glimpses of Twin Peaks when it was in its major and fascinating glory. We caught glimpses of scary images between our parents fingers, because we used to take their hand to cover or eyes when things got chillier. And we were left with a longing feeling for a mysterious and wonderful place, that we couldn’t fully comprehend at that time.

And it seems that the power of Twin Peaks was strong on many other people’s mind, that during all this 24 or 25 years since it ended, it keeps our imagination working.

Several pages on facebook like Welcome to Twin Peaks, Twin Peaks Art, Twin Peaks Lovers, or Twin Peaks Festival, plus a brilliant page dedicated entirely to the show, and even full of animated little characters from the series, Welcome to Twin Peaks, are all keeping the flame alive, the famous “fire walk with me” catch phrase. And then it came something everybody dreamt of for decades…the show will be back in 2016, all directed by David Lynch, and written my Mark Frost. How cool is that, to catch the series at the beginning when you were a kid, and revise it + see the new one when you are fully grown adult? Pretty amazing.

And to celebrate this legacy from the 90’s, we’ve put together some pictures of amazing things people were creating during the years, just to fill in the gap left by the unexpected ending after 2 series. Most of the photos are from Welcome to Twin Peaks, we give them all credits.

From the vaults of BBC Iplayer, a favourite of ours, we discovered the Black Balloon, a touching Australian movie about dealing with being a teenager, having an autistic brother, and falling in love. Plus having a pregnant mother. It sounds like too much in one plot line, but actually everything is pieced together nicely, and the movie flows like the summer days, punctuated by violent storms.

Besides the good and natural story line, the good performances of the cast, and the touching subject, the film is set in the 80’s and has a great display of retro cool stuff, which we couldn’t help but notice.

A great indie feature, equally funny and moving, and full of summer warmth. Highly recommended.
