Short of the week: Land without bread
Dir: Luis Buñuel
A surrealistic documentary portrait of the region of Las Hurdes, a remote region of Spain where civilisation has barely developed, showing how the local peasants try to survive without even the most basic utilities and skills.
Rubén Iñiguez Pérez review: An interesting surrealistic documentary that Buñuel did about the Spanish region of Las Hurdes portraying the poorness and misery its inhabitants are living in. It is true that Buñuel exaggerates the situation in order to show something darker and sadder, but the truth is that the region has been always cursed and let apart from areas of the country. A must see in order to understand the Spanish experimental and surrealistic cinema.
