Instituto Cervantes Gives Tribute to Spanish-born Director Luis Buñuel

ArtPipe Events Filed Under:

Instituto Cervantes de Manila and the Mexican Embassy in the Philippines pay tribute to the achievements of Spanish director Luis Buñuel by showcasing a retrospective of his cinematic creations every Saturday for the whole month of September.

Titled “Luis Buñuel in Mexico”, this special line-up explores the work of the film director, considered as one of the greatest of all time. Spanish-born Buñuel collaborated with Salvador Dali on his first film, "Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog)" and dazzled ever since. He fled to the US during the Spanish Civil War and moved to Mexico in the late 40s where he lived and worked until his death in 1983.

The film cycles are organized by Instituto Cervantes de Manila in collaboration with the Mexican Embassy, the Spanish Embassy in the Philippines, and Spanish Agency International Cooperation for Development (AECID).

All screenings (in Spanish with English subtitles) will be held at Instituto Cervantes’ Salón de Actos every Saturday at 2 p.m.

Admission to all the screenings is FREE on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis.
