About Book

Un Chien Andalou, the most influential of all surrealist films, has shocked, provoked and puzzled audiences and critics since its release in 1929.

Luis Bunuel's first film was a collaboration with his fellow Spaniard, the 24-year-old Salvador Dali. They aimed to expunge from their script any 'idea or image that might lend itself to a rational explanation'. The result is a film that alludes and disturbs but stubbornly resists a definitive meaning.

This edition includes a foreword by Jean Vigo, an early champion of the film, a shot-by-shot transcription and an extended introduction by Phillip Drummond.
