L’Age d’Or

Directed by Luis Buñuel

Two of the seminal surrealist films by Spanish director Buñuel are reissued in new 35mm prints, offering the chance to appreciate their visual panache. Co-written with his university cohort Salvador Dali, CHIEN is a montage of images that can still shock. In L’AGE D’OR a couple is constantly prised apart from arduous lovemaking – by the police, high society, and especially the Church. The film establishes many of Buñuel’s themes and was pronounced by its patron exquisite and delicious, though it outraged less liberal Frenchmen. Please note: UN CHIEN ANDALOU screens first
