Salvador Dalí. A Soft Self-Portrait

Jean-Christophe Averty, speaker Orson Welles, USA 1969, 52’, E (without subtitles)

This wildly shrill film, very much in keeping with the style of the 1960s, was produced in close collaboration with Salvador Dalí who was responsible for the concept and set in addition to performing in the main role. Orson Welles sought to give the film structure through the insertion of biographical elements but proves unable to tame Dalí’s surrealistic derring-do.
