  5. Fact Sheet

In 1930 in Paris, "The Golden Age" is a scandal and Luis Buñuel is broke. A suggestion is made for him to film a documentary in Las Hurdes, a poor area in Spain. His friend, Ramón Acín, buys a lottery with the promise that if he wins he will pay for the film. He wins and keeps his promise. The harshness of the shooting and the poverty will affect Buñuel deeply.
