Director: Hans Richter    → show biography   
Country: Germany
Year: 1928
Synopsis: Pure vintage dada. A humorous, delightful, grotesque in which ordinary objects rebel against their daily routine and, for a brief period of liberation, fallow their own laws. A bow-tie undoes itself, bowler hats float gracefully through the air, coffee cups leap from a tray to smash themselves on the ground, and so forth. At the stroke of noon, they return to their normal functional state. GHOSTS BEFORE BREAKFAST represents one of the earliest collaborations between avant-garde filmmaker and composer: Paul Hindemith's score accompanied the film when it was first shown at an avent-garde music festival in Baden-Baden in 1928.
