Luis Bunuel

A month long look at the work of Luis Buñuel who was born in the Aragon region of Spain. A student friend of Federico García Lorca and Salvador Dalí, he established his early reputation with the Surrealist classics Un Chien andalou and L'Age d'or.

In 1946 - following a period of relative obscurity - the chance to adapt a play by García Lorca took Buñuel to Mexico. The project fell through, but he spent the next 20 years there learning his craft as a film-maker.

Many of the films from this Mexican period stay within box-office conventions. Some, however - such as El, Archibaldo de la Cruz, and Nazarin - are major achievements, and all show evidence of Buñuel's unique genius.
