Born in Spain, Luis Buuel is widely credited as the founder of surrealist cinema with films such as Un Chien andalou (made with Salvador Dali) and L'Age d'Or. Sensing that someone with his political and artistic sensibilities would have no place in a Nationalist-controlled Spain, Buuel immigrated to New York and later to Mexico, where his career in cinema really began. Although most of the films in this set were made in France, Buuel would return frequently to his adopted Mexican homeland, eventually dying in Mexico City in 1983.
