Part of BAMcinématek 2014 series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel

Due to a print issue, the originally scheduled screening of Spain '36 will be replaced by Un Chien Andalou.

 
Land Without Bread (1933)

Run time: 27min

 

One of the landmark achievements in early documentary, this chronicle of Las Hurdes, the poorest district in northern Spain, is a notorious parody of nonfiction filmmaking that was banned by the Spanish government. In its surrealistic style and satirical undertones, it provides a searing condemnation of poverty and stands as “a frightening call to arms, a fabulous open text that resists simple readings and questions humanity's notion of progress” (Slant). 35mm.

 
Un Chien Andalou (1929)

With Simone Mareuil, Pierre Batcheff
Run time: 16min

 

Eyeball meets razor blade in Buñuel’s landmark first film. Made in collaboration with Dalí, “the most famous short film ever made” (Roger Ebert) is a delirious onslaught of breathtakingly surreal imagery that Buñuel described as “a desperate impassioned call for murder.” 16mm.
