  • The Death of Salvador Dalí

    2005. USA. Written and directed by Delaney Bishop. With Dita Von Teese. This short film explores a fictional meeting between Dalí and Sigmund Freud—with an unexpected outcome. Dalí, who was an advocate of modern psychoanalysis, had actually met with Freud in 1936. During the visit, Dalí was uncharacteristically subdued and focused on sketching Freud, who later wrote that while he considered most of the Surrealists "fools," Dalí "suggested to me a different estimate." 18 min.

  • Belle de jour

    1967. France/Italy. Directed by Luis Buñuel. Screenplay by Buñuel, Jean-Claude Carrière, based on the novel by Joseph Kessel. With Catherine Deneuve. Séverine, the beautiful, bored, and frigid wife of a surgeon, leads a monotonous life—but her fantasies are sensational. Buñuel's tale of fetishism and eroticism in bourgeois society reprises themes from his partnership with Dalí on Un Chien andalou. In French; English subtitles. 100 min.
