Dalí Nostrum

The Makings of a Genius

Dalí Nostrum  offers a fresh look at world-renowned painter Salvador Dalí from the perspective of his unique personality, focusing on the main elements that shaped his life and were reflected in his work. The documentary centers on themes reflected in the artist's works: family relationships, life with Gala, friendship, money, religion, sex, cuisine and his roots in the Empordà region of Catalonia.

We see, for example, that Dalí was a pampered child; that he had a rocky relationship with his father; and that his family disapproved of his relationship with his muse Gala, because she was a married woman with a child, and a provocative voice in those times.
This documentary is yet another key to understanding the person hidden within the grand artist.
