BUNUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES
Sat Oct 20 2018
1930th, Paris, the film “The Golden Age” cause a social scandal and Luis Buñuel, thinking he was destined to be the surrealism star, does not find support. Then, he is being offered a documentary project about one of the poorest places in Spain, Las Hurdes, but Buñuel has no financial means to produce it.
His friend, the sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket while joking, promising Luis the documentary financing in case he wins it. The ticket is awarded and Ramón fulfills his promise.
The harshness of Las Hurdes and the extreme misery of its people, affects Buñuel deeply. Reality, dreams, memories of Salvador Dalí and his own childhood intermingle in his mind, endangering not only the production but also his friendship with Ramón. From then on, the Buñuel of the future is born.
But, what does it lose? What is the cost to him?

This season marks the return of Creative California Communities, our creative placemaking program, as well as Research in the Arts, supporting original research on the value and impact of the arts. We’re also excited to announce the launch of our newest grant program, Youth Arts Action, offering support for arts projects for youth outside of school time, and building upon the Arts Education Extension program that piloted from 2016 to 2018.
Also new this year is the ability for applicant organizations without 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to utilize a fiscal sponsor across every program category — an option previously allowed for most but not all grant programs.
