Salvador Simó’s exquisitely animated film dramatizes and humanizes the creative breakthrough that led surrealist pioneer Luis Buñuel to make his groundbreaking documentary Land Without Bread (Las Hurdes).

Land Without Bread (Las Hurdes) plays Sunday, August 25 as part of A BUNDLE OF BUÑUEL, with L’Age d’Or (35mm), and Un Chien Andalou. More info and tickets here.

Paris, 1930. Buñuel is left penniless after the scandalous release of L’Age d’Or leads to a falling out with collaborator Salvador Dalí. On a whim, Buñuel’s good friend, sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket and promises to devote his winnings to fund Buñuel’s next film. Incredibly, Ramón wins the jackpot, sending the two friends to the remote mountains of their native Spain to film the documentary Las Hurdes: Land Without Bread. Driven by mad artistic impulse and haunted by childhood memories, Buñuel must confront the specter of mortality looming over the lives of his subjects and his own.

París, 1930. Salvador Dalí y Luis Buñuel son las grandes figuras del movimiento surrealista. Inexplicadamente, Buñuel se queda sin dinero después del escándalo por su película La edad de oro. Durante esa situación difícil no puede avanzar con su siguiente proyecto, un documental acerca de las regiones más pobres de España, Las Hurdes. Pero su buen amigo, el escultor Ramón Acín, compra un boleto de lotería con la promesa de que, si gana, él producirá su película. Increíblemente, la suerte está de su lado.

Presented by RoxCine.

Directed by Salvador Simó. Original title: Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas. 80 minutes. 2019. DCP. A Gkids release.
