Hans Richter: Everything Turns Everything Revolves celebrates the life of the Dadaist, abstract painter and experimental filmmaker who was a major force in redefining art in the 20th century. In collaboration with friends including Marcel Duchamp, Sergei Eisenstein, Tristan Tzara, Mies Van Der Rohe and Hans Arp, Richter was at the leading edge of the European Avant Garde. His 1920s experimental films "Rhythmus 21" and "Ghosts Before Breakfast" established film as a unique art form, liberated from the theatrical conventions of script and actors. After being forced out of Europe by the Nazis in 1941, Richter escaped to the U.S. where he became a prophet of modernism for a generation of young American artist/filmmakers, who would galvanize into the New American Cinema movement.
