  • The Fountain

    2006. USA. Directed by Darren Aronofsky. With Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz. Aronofsky's fantastical film references both Dalí's visual cosmos and the imagery of sixteenth-century Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch's triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. The film's hyper-realistic landscapes mirror Dalí's 1937 painting Metamorphosis of Narcissus, in which the natural world is depicted as both the destroyer and savior of mankind. 97 min.

  • Oftalmología por el Profesor I. Barraquer de Barcelona

    1917. Spain. Directed by Francesc Puigvert. While it is not known if Dalí viewed this Gaumont actuality, the scenes are a thematic precursor to the slitting of the eye in Un Chien andalou. Print courtesy Filmoteca de Catalunya. Silent; Spanish subtitles. Approx. 7 min.

In the Film exhibition Salvador Dalí: Consumer/Consumed
