Buñuel Film Series at BAMcinématek

Buñuel Film Series at BAMcinématek

A retrospective of Luis Buñuel from his beginnings as a godfather of filmic Surrealism to his remarkably fertile exile in Mexico to his late-career renaissance as a titan of international cinema.

Spanish-born director Luis Buñuel’s richly varied body of work reveals a consummate film-poet whose movies overflow with unforgettable, dreamlike images. Though he frequently courted controversy for his subversive razzing of religion and middle-class moral hypocrisy, at the heart of Buñuel’s cinema is a pure and unflagging sense of humanism.
