Metadata:
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.
