Lynch's Inland Empire documentary

The film followed David Lynch during the two years he took to shoot Inland Empire. The film is called tentatively called Lynch, surprisingly, and is being taken to Cannes to look for non-North American distributors.
Not much is known about it, and it's amazing it has been kept so quiet until now. According to the story in Variety, Lynch is directed by an unknown going simply by the name of blackANDwhite. The unnamed Director lived and worked from Lynch's home, so it may be him or a member of his family. In fact let's face it, it could be anyone until they actually reveal who it is. However they did give a quote on the story:
My goal is to present to the world the unique experience of being with David Lynch for a prolonged period of time, watching him as he creates on a day-to-day basis.
The story goes on to say that the DVD release of Inland Empire carries with it a half hour documentary called Lynch 2, sounds as though it's connected to this feature length version.
The documentary will certainly be worth investigating as Lynch is such a bizarre and yet strangely magnetic character whether you like his films or not.
