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.
With Simone Mareuil, Pierre Batcheff
