My presentation, or rather research, is on Surrealism and its impact on modern cinema. Surrealism was an art movement, introduced in France, during the 1920s. It aimed to “revolutionize the human experience” by advocating individuals to use their imagination, to live a better life or to make a commentary on the human experience. Oftentimes surrealists enforce juxtaposition of two separate realities to describe a moment, separate from the real world. Surrealism was really a cultural movement— inspiring many aspects of arts and entertainment today. That is my focus. In my research, I studied Andre Breton’s( founder of the Surrealist movement) Manifestoes of Surrealism and what it means to practice surrealism. I looked at various Surrealists artists (including Dali and Kahlo), and their artworks that present elements of the movements. Specific elements of Surrealism can be found in modern media today, especially in film. I looked at Dali’s short film and made the connection to a modern day film like Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which showcases some of the same elements .
