The Surrealists' film and art is some of my favorite but I don't claim to be a purist. For this montage, I used scenes from Dali & Luis Buñuel's surrealist film Un Chien Andalou (1929) and even Dali's designs for Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945) along with paintings and images of the Spanish Civil War and WWII.
My goal in these video interludes was not to teach history or art criticism, but to evoke the times and set the mood for the plays which followed. So liberties were taken - for example, I used examples from Picasso in several of the videos, modern music in some, or mixed some Surrealists in with Dadaists and so on as fitted the montage itself.
Hope you enjoy.
