Part of BAMcinématek 2014 series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1955

With Miguel Torruco, Columba Domínguez, Joaquín Cordero

“Carry an image of the Virgin—and a gun.” Machismo runs amok in a small town where men are locked in a permanent blood feud and the dead are ritualistically offered up to the murky river that runs nearby. This ultra-rare Mexican production is Buñuel’s scorching demonstration of “how mythic conventions of the Mexican way of death could be deployed in an anti-western many years ahead of its time” (Senses of Cinema).

In Spanish with English subtitles
