  • L'Hippocampe

    1934. France. Directed by Jean Painlevé. Dalí was intrigued by Painlevé's use of the extreme close-up in his short scientific films. 13 min.

  • The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

    1920. Germany. Directed by Robert Wiene. With Conrad Veidt. Much like this film, Dalí's drawing Brothel (1922) prominently features a somnambulist character amidst the angular architecture of an Expressionist landscape. Similar pictorial strategies can be seen in three other drawings by Dalí— Madrid Suburb, Summer Night, and The Drunkard—indicating the artist was keenly aware of German Expressionist cinema. Silent; German main titles, English intertitles; with musical accompaniment. Approx. 58 min.
