France 1930
Dir Luis Buñuel
With Lya Lys, Gaston Modot, Max Ernst, Pierre Prévert
63min
35mm
English subtitles
Certificate 15

Co-written by the director and Salvador Dali, this classic of cinematic surrealism follows a couple whose desperate attempts to consummate their passion are repeatedly frustrated by the stalwart pillars of civilisation: the law, the bourgeoisie and, of course, the church. Corrosive black humour and consistent visual and narrative invention produce a film that still manages to delight and shock in equal measure.

+ Porky’s Romance
USA 1937. Dir Frank Tashlin. 8min
A lovely Looney Tunes contemplation on the consequences of love, as experienced by Porky when he falls head-over-trotters for Petunia Pig. She, needless to say, is unimpressed.
