Dreams That Money Can Buy DVD


Hans Richter was for four decades one of the most influential members of the cinematic avant-garde. In this film he made the bold attempt to introduce this work to a wider audience. Using the framing story of a man who discovers how to craft and sell dreams to a series of anxious clients Richter allotted each dream (seven in all) to artists who included Max Ernst Man Ray Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder. Some chose to reprise their work in cinematic form - Ernst recreates a sequence from his collage novel La Semaine de Bont and Richter uses music by composers ranging from Darius Milhaud and John Cage to Duke Ellington. Shot for just $25 000 in a Manhattan loft the film went on to win the Venice Film Festival Award for the best original contribution to the progress of cinematography.

Dadaist painter and film-maker Hans Richter was the guiding force behind this surreal feature in which a young man, Joe, discovers that he can create dreams, and sets about selling them to various clients. The 'dreams' are in fact the products of Richter's fellow artists' imaginations, including Max Ernst, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp.
