About Guy Maddin Presents L’Age d’Or
- Year Released:
- Comedy, Drama, Experimental
- Directed by Luis Buñuel
The poetic, absurd, erotic, visionary and
scandalous, L’Age d’Or
can still “provoke,
baffle and delight” (The New York Times)
more than seventy years after its creation.
Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí created an
avant-garde tour de force that’s both an
aesthetic avalanche of boldness and a
withering attack on a society that elevates
pious morality over sexual freedom—a
gleeful fever dream of Freudian unease,
bizarre humor and shocking imagery that
once experienced cannot be forgotten.
Guy Maddin wrote that “We’ll never quite
catch up to this picture.” (35mm presentation)
Guy Maddin is
scheduled to be present.
