"The cinematographic universe of Dada is a crossroads of iconographic subversion and abstraction, formal geometry and corporal eroticism, bathed in a general indifference to “making sense” - unless it is making sense of its own deconstruction."
Contains a booklet 36 pages with texts on the Dada by Philippe-Alain Michaud and Hans Richter
