Summary Paris, 1930. The infamous surrealist filmmaker Luis Buñuel is left penniless after the scandalous release of L'Age d'Or leads to a falling out with collaborator Salvador Dalí. On a whim, Buñuel's good friend, sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket and promises to devote his winnings to fund Buñuel's next film. Incredibly, Ramón wins the 20,000-pesos jackpot, sending the two friends to the remote mountains of their native Spain to film the documentary Las Hurdes: Land Without Bread, often cited as the industry's first attempt at mockumentary. Driven by mad artistic impulse and haunted by childhood memories, Buñuel must confront the specter of mortality looming over the lives of his film's desperate subjects, forcing him to turn a subjective lens on his own life, as well.
