Featured Film | Dreams That Money Can Buy

I'd like to start off the new year with a surrealist piece of art that will (hopefully) set the tone for the rest of the year. An avant-garde experiment and inspirational project, just as this blog strives to be(come). 

Dreams That Money Can Buy is a 1947 experimental feature color film written, produced, and directed by surrealist artist and dada film-theorist Hans Richter.The film is a well-curated showcase of dreams by an artist collective including: Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Alexander Calder, Darius Milhaud and Fernand Léger; and original music compositions by John Cage, Paul Bowles, Darius Milhaud and Louis Applebaum. The film won the Award for the Best Original Contribution to the Progress of Cinematography at the 1947 Venice Film Festival
