BUNUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES SCSELFMADEHERO
BuÃ±uel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles depicts a decisive moment in the life of the great Spanish filmmaker Luis BuÃ±uel: the moment when he doubted surrealism and contemplated embracing a more social type of cinema. At this crucial turning point in his career, he wanted to change the world by showing the hidden heart of reality. BuÃ±uel was deeply affected by the harshness of Las Hurdes and the extreme misery of the people who live in this remote region, so with his friend, the movie producer RamÃ³n AcÃ¬n, he began work on the pseudo-documentary Land Without Bread. But in the mind of the great surrealist, reality inevitably clashed with dreams and childhood memories, threatening both the film and his friendship with AcÃ¬n. It is at this moment that the BuÃ±uel of the future was born.
