SESSION: Saturday 2nd April at 6pm

Un Chien Andalou

(1929, dir. Luis Buñuel, w/ Pierre Batcheff, Simone Mareuil, Luis Buñuel)

In a surrealistic film with input from Salvador Dalí, director Luis Buñuel presents stark, surrealistic images including the slitting open of a woman's eye and a dead horse being pulled along on top of a piano. A mysterious film open to interpretations ranging from deep to completely meaningless, this short (17-minute) film certainly presented something new in the cinema of its day. (IMDB)

L’Age d’Or

(1930, dir. Luis Buñuel, w/ Gaston Modot, Lya Lys, Caridad de Laberdesque)

L’Age d’Or will start at approximately 6:42pm, and finish at approximately 7:51pm.

Bunuel's first feature has more of a plot than Un chien andalou (1929), but it's still a pure Surrealist film, so this is only a vague outline. A man and a woman are passionately in love with each other, but their attempts to consummate that passion are constantly thwarted by their families, the Church, and bourgeois society. (IMDB)
