BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES
BUÑUEL EN EL LABERINTO DE LAS TORTUGAS
2019, GKIDS, 80 min, Spain/Netherlands/Germany, Dir: Salvador Simó

With a colorful animated style, BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES tells the nearly unbelievable true story of how Luis Buñuel made his second film in early 1930s Spain. Bogged down in controversy surrounding his first feature-length film, L’AGE D’OR, Buñuel has an incredible stroke of luck after obtaining a winning lottery ticket, which ultimately leads to avant-garde sculptor Ramón Acín agreeing to fund his next film. Featuring heartfelt vocal performances by Jorge Usón and Fernando Ramos and Buñuel’s real archival footage from the production, the film is a moving portrait of one of the world’s greatest artists at work. Winner of Best Film and Best Music at the 2019 Málaga Spanish Film Festival. “A fun, clever, and wholly unexpected animated movie about the making of Luis Buñuel's ‘Land Without Bread.’” - David Ehrlich, indieWire.
