Shown for the first time in Madrid in 1933 by Luis Buñuel (1900-1983), who read the commentary at the microphone (the original print being silent) whilst playing records of Brahms, this ’cinematographic essay of human geography’ provoked a huge scandal. Original music by Martin Matalon for viola and electronics in real time.
