1998. Spain. Directed by Manuel Cussó-Ferrer. Based on Dalí's 1932 Surrealist scenario, Babaouo may be the artist's most conventional narrative. Lounging in a hotel, Babaouo receives a letter from his lover Matilda and, learning she is stranded in a castle, departs to rescue her. Interspersed with archetypal Dalí iconography, Babaouo remained an unrealized project for more than sixty years. Print courtesy Filmoteca de Cataluyna-ICIC. In Catalan; English subtitles. 70 min.
