Humour et Facéties des Dadas

MUBI Special

En partenariat avec le FESTIVAL DES CINÉMAS DIFFÉRENTS ET EXPÉRIMENTAUX DE PARIS , nous avons le plaisir de vous présenter trois films majeurs du cinéma avant-gardiste des années 1920. Trois perles qui ne manquent pas de plaisanter avec les codes établis et deviendront une inspiration pour le cinéma expérimental.

Return to Reason

Man Ray France, 1923

Experimental film, white specks and shapes gyrating over a black background, a light-striped torso, a gyrating eggcrate.

Ghosts Before Breakfast

Hans Richter Germany, 1928

Hans Richter, noted for his abstract shorts, has everyday objects rebelling against their daily routine.


René Clair France, 1924

Premiered as an entr’acte for the Ballets Suédois production Relâche at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris. Relâche is based on a book and with settings by Francis Picabia, produced by Rolf de Maré, and with choreography by Jean Börlin.
