Luis Buñuel, precursor of surrealist film, always maintained references to the postulates of this cinematic avant-garde throughout his career. With his distinctive sense of humor, Buñuel continuously integrated memories of his childhood and youth—a driving force behind the uniqueness of his work. Buñuel’s films convey his worldview, ideas, doubts, and storytelling prowess without ever sacrificing his most intimate obsessions.
This documentary tells the story of a film shoot in which a group of artists and experts converged in an extraordinary way, marking the evolution of an important part of both Mexican and international cinema, photography, and performance. Through a thrilling journey that follows in the footsteps of this enthusiastic and subversive group of artists led by Luis Buñuel, we rediscover the sites where they filmed the story of Father Nazario.
