After the scandalous screening of the Surrealist film Golden Age, the film's director, Luis Bunuel, leaves the cinema, and shortly thereafter, we see him standing in the center of a circularly arranged closed doors. The director, who is the founding director of surrealism in film production, is thinking of making a documentary, but all doors are closed for him, and no one wants to get into a new scandal. The new film, “Las Hurdes”, was the door that would allow him to get out of the closed circle. In urban life, he sometimes saw surrealistic visions of reality. This is how we see Bunuel, the buyer of bread, who suddenly turns to see elephants with spider legs. The city was a depleted environment that needed to come out in search of new forms of self-expression. Although the animated film "Bunuel in the Labyrinth of The Turtles" begins with the screening of "Golden Age", there are also obvious links to Bunuel's first "Andalusian Dog" surrealist film, co-written by Salvador Dali. We see shots that were used for the first time in that film. Particularly when Luis and Ramon (a friend and sponsor of the film) argue and the latter says that he is the same kid who keeps playing with donkeys, he meant Bunuel's first film where we see the killed donkeys on the piano. The director then shows Bunuel dressed in women, who is also a famous shot in the film above, and continues the piano scene (two men in feminine clothes tied to a piano). There are three main plot lines in this animated film; The first is the main character's conflict with himself, perhaps, for this reason, he decides to abandon surrealism and begins to make a documentary film. The second mainline is the conflict with parents, society, who always compare him to Dali, which is depicted in the film by remembering childhood episodes and dreaming of parents. Interestingly, when they arrive at Las Hurdes, Bunuel tells Ramón that he no longer see dreams and that is a good sign, but that night he saw a dream. Perhaps this is what the director tells us that this story will not end well. After all, the film is created, but not without consequences. The third plotline is related to the complexity of film making, but this important issue is accompanied by a subtle humor that allows one to laugh at the problem and focus more on the previous two issues. After all, the issue had an incredible solution from the beginning; The movie would be made with lottery money. An animated film about the creation of a documentary film that uses original, documentary footage. This is the structure of the whole film. And the creation of the animated film here is completely justified; If it was to make a feature film, the use of original footage would be absurd, artificial. Using original animations, the animator reinforces the viewers' belief that what they are seeing has actually happened. Las Hurdes was a new reality for the civilized world, and Bunuel was a part of that world, and after seeing the face of poverty, it could not be affected, it could not be unchanged. But what he did in the classical sense was neither a documentary nor a surrealist one; He intervened in the course of life and validated his intervention, a well-known fact is that several scenes were staged, such as the burial of a child who was actually asleep, the crushing of a rooster's head, the killing of a stalker, and so on. Las Hurdes where they "eat, sleep and die in the same room" where "empty hands, empty stomachs" go hunting, and after a few days with the same empty hands, empty stomachs return to the stone ditches was a whole new field for the filmmaker... Las Hurdes showed Bunuel that the reality can be so absurd that there is no need to exaggerate it, to add attributes. Nane Petrosyan
