With an introduced by Sandra Zalman, assistant professor of Art History at the University of Houston, the Menil presents two classics of Surrealist cinema. Almost 90 years after its release, Un chien andalou (1929), written by Dalí and directed by Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel, still retains its ability to shock audiences. L’âge d’or (1930) is a critique of the Catholic Church and was banned in France until 1979.
Co-presented with Aurora Picture Show. Outdoor film screening, east lawn. Free admission.
