Paris, 1930. The infamous surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel is left penniless after the scandalous release of L’Age d’Or. On a whim, Buñuel's good friend, sculptor and anarchist Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket and promises to devote his winnings to fund Buñuel's next film. Incredibly, Ramón wins the jackpot, sending the two friends to the remote mountains of their native Spain to film the documentary Las Hurdes: Land Without Bread. Driven by mad artistic impulse and haunted by childhood memories, revealed in fantastic nightmare imagery, Buñuel confronts the specter of mortality looming over the lives of his subjects—and his own. In a stranger-than-fiction animated tale befitting the master filmmaker, Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles tells the true story behind a fascinating episode in cinematic history, presenting a deeply affecting and humanistic portrait of an artist hunting for his purpose. Truly unique. Winner, Jury Prize, Annecy International Animation Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)
