my beautiful broken brain

A documentary produced by 'Twin Peaks' director David Lynch is coming to Netflix.

'My Beautiful Broken Brain' tells the story of Dutch-French filmmaker Lotje Sodderland as she recovers from a hemorrhagic stroke. Sodderland described the experience as feeling like she's inside a David Lynch film.

She contacted Lynch to tell him about it, and now he's signed up to executive produce it.

"The brain is truly fascinating and much in the way that our brains are able to achieve total coherence – finding enlightenment and fulfilment, you will surely be moved and inspired by this journey of self-discovery," Lynch said in a statement.

'My Beautiful Broken Brain' will debut on the streaming service on March 18th. Sodderland will co-direct.

Lynch is currently working on the highly anticipated third series of 'Twin Peaks'. Last week, it was rumoured that Naomi Watts has joined the cast. It will air on Sky in the UK next year.

Netflix saw huge success with its recent original documentary 'Making a Murderer'. Like its rival Amazon Prime Video, it's investing heavily in original content in a bid to stand out from other streaming services.
