85th Anniversary! New Digital Restoration!
“Un Chien Andalou”
1929, Transflux Films, 16 min.
Director Luis Buñuel collaborated with artist Salvador Dalí for this groundbreaking short film, a resounding war cry of Surrealism, which bleeds its arresting images (a slit eyeball, an ant-infested hand) into one dreamlike tableau. Different from the version we screened two years ago, this is much closer to what audiences would have seen at the film’s Paris premiere. In French with English subtitles.

“Land Without Bread”
1933, Buñuel Institute, 30 min.
Originally banned by the Spanish government, Buñuel’s profile of the remote border region of Las Hurdes looks at lives so arduous they border on the absurd. Documentary or mockumentary? See this new director’s cut and judge for yourself. In French with English subtitles.
