A powerful and important 1932 documentary by Luis Buñuel on the monstrous conditions of life in the very poorest section of western Spain, Las Hurdes, not far from the Portuguese border. The film is doubly horrifying because of the matter-of-fact commentary written by poet Pierre Unik and spoken on the soundtrack as if the scenes of misery and degradation were parts of an ordinary travelogue. In Spanish with subtitles. 30 min.
