Following World War II a diverse and intense surrealist film culture took shape. Surrealist filmmakers made experimental short films, documentaries, and feature films, while surrealist writers were a steady presence in French film criticism. With this our volume Surrealism and Film After 1945, we present the first anthology on this rich but understudied topic. The volume will feature contributions on filmmakers connected with surrealism, the surrealist reception and exhibition of film, and the surrealist contributions to animation, documentary, and feminist film.
