Plot summary: Examines Dada and Surrealism not simply as modern movements in the plastic arts, but also as a history of ideas emphasising their desire to unify political and psychological values with artistic creativity. Through contemporary newsreels, sparing use of dramatisation and detailed accounts of their paintings, the film summarises the work of Duchamp, Tzara, Arp, Ernst, Schwitters, Breton and Dali.
