Overview

Dreams That Money Can Buy
Hans Richter, 1946, 96 min., 16mm

It took Richter three years to complete Dreams That Money Can Buy while teaching at the Institute of Film Techniques at the City College of New York. The result is a blockbuster of experimental film. Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Fernand Léger, and Man Ray join Richter in presenting a series of dreamscapes investigating wishfulfillment.
