  • Un Chien andalou

    1929. France. Directed by Luis Buñuel. Screenplay by Buñuel, Salvador Dalí. Dalí and Buñuel rejected traditional narrative structure in favor of nonsequential images, including a mutilated hand crawling with ants, decomposing animal carcasses, and a sea urchin—each an abstract representation of sex and death. Print courtesy Filmoteca Española. With Spanish introductory title and French main titles and intertitles. Approx. 16 min.

  • Eating Sea Urchins

    1930. Spain. Directed by Luis Buñuel. While on location in Cadaqués to shoot scenes for L'Age d'or (1930), Buñuel made this home movie featuring Dalí's estranged father and stepmother in an intimate moment: dining alfresco on sea urchins, a local delicacy. The iconographic sea urchin also appears in Un Chien andalou (1929), as well as in Dalí's paintings of the late 1920s. Print courtesy Filmoteca de Catalunya-ICIC. 4 min.

  • L'Age d'or

    1930. France. Directed by Luis Buñuel. Screenplay by Buñuel, Salvador Dalí. With Gaston Modot, Max Ernst. In The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí (1942), Dalí laments being "terribly disappointed," as the film "was but a caricature of my ideas." When it was received as a sensation by Surrealists and Parisian cinephiles, Dalí capitulated: "The film possessed an undeniable evocative strength, and my disavowal of the film would have been understood by no one." In French; English subtitles. 62 min.
