Historical Who is Who

BUNUEL, Luis

1900 - 1983
Spain
LITERATURE, RELIGION

 

Film director, highly regarded for visual artistry (initially achieved in collaboration with Salvador Dali), and most especially for the morally provocative messages represented in his films. These included poverty, juvenile delinquency and fascism. He deliberately engaged in anti-religious polemic – seen as blasphemous by the Roman Catholic Church, but evidently pursued with frank sincerity.
