Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles

Buñuel en el Laberinto de las Tortugas | Salvador Simo

After The Golden Age, Buñuel accepts to make a documentary about the poor isolated fishing village of Las Hurdes. A sculptor friend offers to finance the film using his winnings on the lottery. But the harshness and misery of the village are disturbing to the director, which threatens the production and the friendship between the two men. The whole experience will be an ordeal for the artist.
