Filmmaker Jack Bond and Salvador Dali got together at Christmas 1965 to make Dali in New York, a highly entertaining film. Dali devoted two weeks of his life to creating extraordinary scenes for the film, performing 'manifestations' with a plaster cast, a thousan ants and one million dollars in cash. When he confronts the feminist writer, Jane Arden, sparks fly. 'You are my slave!' 'I am not your slave.' 'Everybody is my slave'.
Dali recalls his meeting with Freud, 'The last human relationship ever,' about his wife: 'But for Gala I would be lying in a gutter somewhere covered with lice.' Jim Desmond's dazzling cinematography captures the great artist painting, as the flamenco vituoso Manitas de Plata performs. Dali in New York is a rare treat for anyone who loves film and the living theatre of Dali's surreal universe.
'Dali off the cuff is outrageous and the exceedingly stylish film moves like an express train.' Nancy Banks Smith, The Guardian
'A truly terrific film' Andy Warhol
