Storyline

A long series of unrelated images, revolving, often distorted: lights, flowers, nails. A lightboard appears from time to time carrying the news of the day. Then, an eye. A woman in a car drives along country roads. Farm animals. She descends from the car, again and again. Images: dancing legs, seashore, swimming fish, geometric shapes, cut glass. A man removes his starched collar. It rotates. A girl has garishly painted eyes. No, she's only fooling. Those were her eyelids. Written by David Carless

This is a beautiful silent short film about obsession, voyeurism and love, stylistically somewhere between DADA, surrealism and of course Man Ray's own genius style. It definitely shows how much the surrealist avantgarde has influenced contemporary (art)cinema!
