Abstract

For the international release of Buñuel’s third Mexican film, Los Olvidados (1950), Mexican writer, poet, diplomat, and Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz wrote this manifesto on the surrealist filmmaker and his new film, which was circulated at the Cannes Film Festival in 1951, where Buñuel went on to win the Best Director prize for the film that year. Paz coxtextualizes Buñuel’s latest film in relation to his earlier works with Salvador Dalí and his surrealist documentary Las Hurdes: Tierra sin pan (Land without Bread [Spain, 1933]).
