Dalí was fascinated with film-making and was involved with several productions. These unpublished sheets bearing the title ‘Five Minutes about Surrealism’ are the outline for an unrealised documentary film about Surrealism. Surrealism was causing a great stir in the early 1930s and this was to be a promotional film to explain the tenets of the movement, as set out in André Breton’s ‘Second Surrealist Manifesto’ of 1929. The script explains the basic schema for the film and the typescript is liberally illustrated with pen and ink drawings by Dalí. The pages are divided into three columns headed ‘Words’, ‘Images’ and ‘Sounds’, from which it is apparent that this was to be a talking film, with a separate sound-strand to create an aura of surrealist disorientation.
