BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH

OF THE TURTLES / Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas

Salvador Simó

Paris, 1930, and the scandal surrounding the release of Luis Buñuel’s film L’Age d’Or has left him penniless. His luck changes suddenly when a friend wins the lottery and he can now start work on his next film, Las Hurdes, a documentary set in Extremadura, Spain. So begins this beautifully animated feature; part road movie and part making-of documentary. An accomplished and fitting homage to the great master of surrealist cinema, and a moving study of artistic temperament and purpose to fit in.  

In collaboration with Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival
