Record Type: Person
Buñuel, Luis (Spanish filmmaker, 1900-1983)

Note: A friend of the painter Salvador Dalí and the poet Federico García Lorca, Buñuel went to Paris in 1925 and entered film-producing circles, feeling that film would become his true medium of expression. For the next 60 years, Buñuel pursued his career in his native Spain, in France, in the United States, and in Mexico. He generally worked within the limitations of the film industry while including personal, frank expressions of his own obsessions, and is noted for having been influenced by Freudian psychoanalysis and having abandoned religion. Best remembered for his early Surrealist films and for his work in the Mexican commercial cinema, Buñuel's prolific career is distinguished for his highly personal style and controversial obsession with social injustice, religious excess, gratuitous cruelty, and eroticism.
