Four Films by Hans Richter

Hans Richter, a German-born painter and early proponent of Dada, played a pivotal role in the development of avant-garde film in the 1920s. A contemporary of Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Fernand Léger, Richter experimented with radical new techniques, including stop-motion animation and rapid editing. Featured in this free short program are Rhythm 21, Filmstudie, Ghosts Before Breakfast, and Two Pence Magic Zweigroschenzauber.
