Seasonal Ruminations: Melbourne Cinematheque And The Significant Magnificent Luis Bunuel

The original enfant terrible, Luis Buñuel, together with Salvador Dalí and poet Federico García Lorca formed the nucleus of the Spanish-Surrealist avant-garde, hoping to shock and insult the intellectual bourgeoisie.

Melbourne Cinematheque is a sublime curated mix of auteur and period driven cinema that aims to reignite the passionate and educate the eager. The current season highlights over twenty years of Bunuel's famous and infamous work, including a sly double feature of dinner party parody and horror with The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie and The Exterminating Angel. The season wraps up with The Phantom Of Liberty and his 1930 extremity L'age D'or. Click through below for highlights of the program which runs from April 16 to April 30.
