Synopsis

Double bill of surrealist art films by the experimental Spanish film-maker Luis Bunuel. 'Un Chien Andalou' (1929), a collaboration with Salvador Dali, consists of a sequence of bizarre and dreamlike images: a straight razor placed next to a woman's eye, a cow's eye slit open, a man poking at a severed hand in the street with his cane, a man dragging two grand pianos containing dead and rotting donkeys and live priests, and a man's hand with a hole in the palm from which ants emerge. In 'L'Age d'Or' (1930), another experimental and avant-garde cinematic experience, a man and a woman are passionately in love with one another, but their attempts to consummate their passion are constantly thwarted by their families, the Church and bourgeois society.
