In 1916, artists from across Europe came together around a pacifist ideal, calling themselves the Dadaists. This international, controversial artistic and literary movement would revolutionize art in the twentieth century. One hundred years later, this film allows the voices of the Dadaists — Tristan Tzara, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Jean Arp and Man Ray — to be heard again, as subversive as ever. It also follows the completion of one of Tzara’s major unfinished projects: Dadaglobe, a compendium and a genuine work of art.
