Retour a la Raison (Silent)

  • 1923 ----- b & w ----- 3 min ----- withdrawn -----
  • By Man Ray. This absurd little film was made overnight in order to insult and aggravate the audience at the last great Dada soirée, called "The Evening of the Bearded Heart." Most of the film was made outside the camera by placing objects directly onto raw film and exposing it to light. (NOTE: Film should be projected at silent speed, ie. 18 frames/second.)
