Film synopsis

Un Chien Andalou was the calling card of two then unknown Spanish artists, Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali. Intended as an affront and an insult to the intellectual bourgeoisie, Bunuel and Dali’s short film is a masterpiece of filmmaking guile and audacity; a shocking celluloid dreamscape that destroyed film convention with surrealist images that still resonate today. 80 years on, Un Chien Andalou remains a startling exploration of the subconscious.

Un Chien Andalou isn’t simply one of the great works of the surrealist movement, but a wellspring of imagery that irrevocably altered the aesthetics of modern cinema, influencing contemporary directors as varied as The Wachowski Brothers, Peter Greenaway and David Lynch.
