Desire/Max Ernst

In 1947, Surrealist artist and Dada film theorist, Hans Richter produced and directed an experimental feature length film called Dreams Money Can Buy. The sequences were written by 7 different surrealist and avant garde artists.  This particular sequence is called Desire and was written and directed by Max Ernst, who also plays the character, The President in the sequence. This particular piece is one of the best depictions of a "dream" I have ever seen.
