Silent film pioneer Germaine Dulac adapted her 1927 feature L'Invitation au voyage from the poem of the same title by late-19th century French belletrist Charles Baudelaire. The film represents an attempt by Dulac to create a work entirely liberated from cinematic narrative per se. It is a "visual symphony," comprised of rhythmically intercut images that embody projections of the artist's raw and direct feelings, unadulterated by the contrivances of story.
