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

Sp. & Fr., 26 min.

cm-glucode00005

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.
