Terre sans pain
"Luis Buñuel's only documentary, Land without bread (Las Hurdes) is a subversive exploration of an isolated region of Spain too barren to sustain life and the backward struggle of its inhabitants to survive. Shot as a travelogue, what surfaces is an unflinching attack on any establishment that would turn a blind eye to such a pocket of misery. Mixing cold scientific examination with absurdity and tragedy, Land without bread answers the mystifying question of whether one can make a Surrealist documentary, and with Buñuel the anser is yes"--Container.
DVD 12569
