Le Retour a La Raison

Le Retour a La Raison (1923) by Man Ray (found via Lay Flat's twitter).

I really like this short film made by Man Ray in 1923. It's considered one of the first Dadaist films made.


"Man Ray, an avant-garde artist known for his innovative work in photography, has made in this film a series of visual and kinetic experiments in the cinematic form.

Weaving abstract and concrete images, positive and negative exposures, static and moving objects, Ray creates a catalog of techniques - including his own 'rayographs', cameraless contact prints of objects on paper and film - that later filmmakers working in the experimental genre would explore and define."
