Experimental, by Jean Cocteau, France, 1932.
A descent into the deep unconscious between poetry, thought and vision. Jean Cocteau transforms it into his first work, as in all his subsequent films, his poetry into cinema. A first work difficult to place in the current of Surrealism. Compared to the films of Luis Buñuel, Man Ray and Germaine Dulac, Cocteau inserts many elements on the creative elements of him and tells them in first person. Funded by the Viscount of Noailles, patron of the surrealists, who wanted a cartoon and who repudiated the film, it consists of four parts.
Food for thought
Most of the time we are exactly in the middle, in the conscious mind. Most people only use the conscious mind. In the lower part there is the unconscious, the collective unconscious and the cosmic unconscious. At the top is the super conscious, super super conscious and cosmic awareness. Our mind is made up of 7 worlds.
