The story of Luis Buñuel is unique in the history of Cinema, because no other director can boast of being considered as one of the top five filmmakers of all time in three different countries; Spain, Mexico and France. In this documentary, Javier Espada goes over his fantastic trajectory in a very educational way. From the very beginning he was closely linked to the surrealist movement and he never left behind entirely, making continuous references to it in all his films. In addition, Espada highlights the multiple connections between Buñuel and other forms of art, particularly literature and painting.
Javier Espada explores how Luis Buñuel, one of the greatest precursors of surrealist cinema through works like “An Andalusian Dog” and “The Golden Age,” began to move away from this movement but never completely abandoned it, maintaining a strong oneiric element in his films. Taking us deep into his past and evolution as a creator, this documentary provides an unprecedented window into the world and work of an irreplaceable genius whose influence has reached the rest of the arts.
