Author of four films made between 1923 and 1929, Man Ray introduces himself as one of the main figures of the film vanguard of the twenties. Man Ray made films to play, to enjoy.
This is what he said about his work: “All the films I made were improvisations. I wrote no scripts. It was automatic cinema. I worked on my own. My intention was to set in motion the compositions I made in photography. The camera helps me fix something I cannot paint. But I am not interested in taking a ‘beautiful picture’ in cinema”.
Screening of 3 films by the director: Return to reason (1923), Emak Bakia (1926) y The starfish (1928). This afternoon, at 8:00 p.m., at the Theatre of the French Institute (10 Marqués de la Ensenada Street, in Madrid). Free entrance.
