Summary "Cinema and surrealism--those twin-born monsters of 20th century culture--found a common champion in the visionary Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel, who transformed his childhood nightmares into art, but then came to dream of a better world. Buñuel: In the Labyrinth of the Turtles tells the graphically surreal true story of how, why, and where this unique artist came to film his third feature, the 1932 "pseudo-documentary" Las Hurdes" (Land Without Bread), and thus helped invent cinéma vérité.--Back cover.
