A Brief History of Surrealism

  • 9'
  • USA
  • 2003
André Breton, the great leader of the surrealist revolution, is still alive and he is in New York! Filmed with Almereyda's favourite pixelvision camera (a children's camera that became popular among experimental film makers), the master demonstrates his power over dream and unconscious. A hypnotised cowboy predicts the war speech of Bush. Outside, a child blows bubbles.
