Land Without Bread
Las Hurdes | Luis Buñuel, 1936
Spain | 30 minutes

Part of our Luís Buñuel retrospective, Buñuel in Spain!

One of the most remarkable documentaries ever made, Land without Bread is a startling, upsetting journey to one of the poorest regions of Spain, done in an irony-laced, “purely observational” style that serves to underscore the misery that Buñuel is capturing and denouncing.

Screening with España 1936
Jean-Paul Le Chanois | 1937 | Spain | 35m

Made just as the Civil War was beginning, Spain ’36 was largely a compilation film produced and written by Buñuel used to stir international solidarity for the defense of the Spanish Republic.
