Considered one of the monumental achievements in experimental filmmaking, this collaborative Dadaist/post-Cubist film was conceived, written, and co-directed by the artist Fernand Léger and filmmaker Dudley Murphy with cinematic contributions from Man Ray.
Ripe with visual puns, the film combines the abstraction of constructivism with the absurdity and wild whims of Dadaism. 1924, France, 16mm, silent with live score, 19 minutes. Recommended for 13+.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Picasso to Pollock: Modern Masterworks from the Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University.
