DALÍ LAND

DALÍ LAND is the story of the strange and fascinating marriage of the brilliant surrealist artist Salvador Dalí and his domineering wife and muse, Gala as their seemingly unshakable bond begins to fracture.

Set in New York and Spain in 1973, the story is told through the eyes of James, a young gallery assistant who helps Dalí prepare for a big show. While James hopes to learn some of the secrets of great art from one of the 20th Century’s greatest painters, he instead falls down a rabbit hole of glittering parties, searing personal battles and an art world awash with money and intrigue. 

DALÍ LAND takes us on a wild ride alongside the artist whose own life was as strange and surreal as his paintings.
