Berlin-born Hans Richter - Dadaist, painter, film theorist and filmmaker - was for four decades one of the most influential members of the cinematic avant-garde. Richter assembled some of the century's liveliest artists as co-creators of 'Dreams That Money Can Buy', his most ambitious attempt to bring the work of the European avant-garde to a wider cinema audience. Joe, a young man down on his luck, discovers he has the power to create dreams, and sets up a business selling them to others. The 'dreams' he gives to his clients are the creations of Max Ernst, Fernand Léger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder and Richter himself.
The result is by turns playful, hypnotic, satirical, charming and nightmarish.
