To gain more knowledge in surrealism I researched more into the subject. I looked into the practitioners of surrealism such as Luis Bunuel, Salvador Dali, and Sigmund Freud. I watched a lot of documentaries about these practitioners to understand their theories and what they are all about. I had already knew some information about then due to studying them in A-level but I really wanted to get to know them more into depth. Here is the link from YouTube where I watched the documentaries:
