VIDEO: The Dadaist Films of Hans Richter

Flying hats, floating neck ties, stacked guns- Hans Richter’s Dadaist film “Ghosts Before Breakfast” from 1927 is nothing short of amazing- and inspiring. The film opens with “The Nazi destroyed the sound version of this film of “degenerate art”. It shows that even objects revolt against regimentation”- love the message and love this film.
