  • 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.

  • 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.

In the Film exhibition Salvador Dalí: Consumer/Consumed
