Ballet Mécanique (1923–24) is currently viewed as one of the key works of early experimental cinema. The piece is part of Dadaist post-Cubist approach, and is created by Fernand Léger, in collaboration with Dudley Murphy. The piece premiered as a silent film, in 1924, the musical score is composed by George Antheil and added later.
Despite the very formal, modernist appearance, the work is full of delicious visual puns. Enjoy!
