Las Hurdes: Tierra Sin Pan (Luis Buñuel, 1932)

Sp. & Fr., 26 min.

imdb :: wiki

A parody of documentary, Buñuel’s exaggerations included covering a donkey in honey so that it would be killed by bees.  The people of Las Hurdes have been stigmatized for generations, and the subject of some ill-conceived reconstruction plans.  Now they live by tourism and bee-keeping.  Watch this film for its surrealism and not its truth.

  1. The hurdes was really the most poor and miserable region of Spain and Europe.

    Many diseases were caused by malnutrition.

    Were hard and hungry times in Spain.
