Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 82: Sat Mar 23

Dreams That Money Can Buy (Richter, 1947): Barbican Cinema, 4pm
This rarely seen film is screening as part of a season devoted to the artist Marchel Duchamp.


Chicago Reader review:
'Hans Richter's rarely screened feature, made between 1944 and 1947, follows a young poet named Joe who sets up a shop that sells dreams to customers based on their own subconscious material. Half a dozen artists—Max Ernst (who provided the inspiration for the film and also wrote a monologue), Fernand Leger, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Alexander Calder, and David Diamond—were hired by Richter to design separate dreams for the film; other participants include Paul Bowles, Libby Holman, Darius Milhaud, and John Cage.'
