"Absurda", a short film by David Lynch which was created for Cannes Film Festival’s 60th anniversary in 2007, is an great example of Lynch work, it condensed of many themes exhibited in Lynch’s work as a whole. The narrative is very abstract and it revolves around several characters which are identified by their off-screen voices;

There is man In The Projection Room, who seems to be a director, is the latest in a long line of directors portrayed in Lynch’s films, but where Mulholland Drive’s Adam Kesher (Justin Theroux) and Bob Brooker (Wayne Grace) and Inland Empire’s Kingsley Stewart (Jeremy Irons) are clumsy and quite easily manipulated figures, Absurda’s character is completely in control. The projector show murder with a series of apparently unrelated abstract and blurry images on the screen on which he appears. As he speaks the events seem to unfold, as if he himself is willing them into being. Absurda is a tribute to cinema’s emotive and narrative power, and The Man In The Projection Room seems to be Lynch’s portrayal of his own role as a cinematic artist controlling the fates of his characters.”
