Joe, a young man down on his luck, discovers he has the power to create dreams, and sets up a business selling them to others.
Berlin-born Hans Richter – Dadaist, painter, film theorist and filmmaker – was for four decades one of the most influential members of the cinematic avant-garde. Richter assembled some of the century’s liveliest artists as co-creators of Dreams That Money Can Buy, his most ambitious attempt to bring the work of the European avant-garde to a wider cinema audience. Among its admirers is film director David Lynch.
Joe, a young man down on his luck, discovers he has the power to create dreams, and sets up a business selling them to others. The ‘dreams’ he gives to his clients are the creations of Max Ernst, Fernand Lger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder and Richter himself, and the result is by turns playful, hypnotic, satirical, charming and nightmarish. Dreams That Money Can Buy is a film in seven segments namely:
Desire Director, Writer - Max Ernst
The Girl with the Prefabricated Heart Director, Writer - Fernand Lger
Ruth, Roses and Revolvers Director, Writer - Man Ray
Discs Director, Writer - Marcel Duchamp
Ballet Director, Writer - Alexander Calder
Circus Director, Writer - Alexander Calder
Narcissus Director, Writer - Hans Richter
