In 1923, Man Ray ventured into the realm of cinema with his first film Return to Reason, a silent exploration of photogram manipulation. Through a dance of shadows, he unveiled hidden images and mysterious lights, at times speckled with salt and pepper, at times juxtaposed, partly illuminating the naked body of the legendary model Kiki de Montparnasse. He renews the boldly surrealist experience with Emak Bakia in 1926, L‘Étoile de mer in 1928 and Les Mystères du château de Dé in 1929. In 2023, Jim Jarmush and Carter Logan, the founding members of the group Sqürl, compose a soundtrack to the four films as if they were forming one unique piece.
