The Abandon All Hope Film Series
Un Chien Andalou and Salvador Dali: His Life Through His Paintings

Un Chien Andalou was written by Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel and is regarded as a highly influential work of surrealist cinema. Created in 1929 this short film is noted for its lack of a conventional plot and use of powerful graphic symbolism. A screening of Salvador Dali: His Life Through His Paintings, a documentary produced shortly after the artist’s death, will follow the screening of Un Chien Andolou

The Abandon All Hope Film Series is an extension of the current exhibition of Salvador Dali prints housed in the Barrick Museum of Art. During the month of February the museum will screen films that either relate to the artist or the Italian literary works that inspired the illustrations currently on display. This eclectic film series, curated by Lee Cannarozzo, is meant to further the public’s knowledge of Salvador Dali and to demonstrate the cultural resonance of Medieval Italian literature.

All films screen at 7 p.m., Barrick Museum Auditorium.
