In a stranger-than-fiction tale befitting the master surrealist filmmaker himself, Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles tells the true story of how Luis Buñuel made his second film.
Both a buddy adventure and fascinating episode of cinematic history, this acclaimed animation utilises sensitive performances, as well as excerpts of Buñuel’s own footage from the production of Land Without Bread, to present a deeply affecting and humanistic portrait of an artist hunting for his purpose.
Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles will be available on BFI Player and other digital platforms from 16 July 2020.
