Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spiralling out of the Surrealist movement alongside the art, photography and manifestos, were a number of experimental films, notably Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou and L'Age d'Or. The Age of Gold revisits these two seminal films and explores their making, themes and images, the scandal and riots that accompanied their release, and their impact and influence on modern-day cinema.

Fully illustrated throughout, The Age of Gold also documents the cinematic theories of Antonin Artaud and traces the parallels in avant-garde and Dadaist film-including the work of Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray.

Robert Short is a lecturer at the -University of East Anglia, England. Previous publications include Hans Bellmer, Surrealism: Permanent Revelation and Dada & Surrealism.

Synopsis:

Surrealist cinema, as epitomized by Salvador Dal and Luis Buuels Un Chien Andalou and LAge dOr, was a knife through the heart of the establishment; a scorpionic, scatological black joke galvanized by the irrational, the uncanny, and the spectre of de Sade. The Age Of Gold revisits these two seminal films investigating: the process of collaborative psychic automatism the scandals and riots caused by their themes and images the experimental cinematic theories of Antonin Artaud traces the precursors and parallels of Surrealist cinema in avant-garde and Dadaist film including Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray the filmic legacy of the surrealist movement Illustrated with striking images, The Age of Gold clearly demonstrates how Surrealist film finally erupted from the throes of experimental cinema, the art, texts and manifestos of the Surrealist Movement. This new, expanded Solar edition includes a new illustrated chapter on Salvador Dali and cinema
