Long out-of-print, this 1966 avant garde opus came to fruition thanks to the joint efforts of painter Salvador Dali and director Jack Bond, who teamed up during Christmas 1965 to shoot a number of surrealistic scenes where Dali creates on-camera "manifestations" by employing a plaster cast in many unusual ways. Dali then speaks candidly and extensively about his life, including his interaction with Sigmund Freud and the role of his wife Gala in his life and career. Director Bond also films the great painter working at his easel to the strains of Flamenco performer Manitas de Plata.
