Bunuel’s Beautiful Badinage
Thursday 2nd June, 2011, 7 – 8pm (BST) on Resonance 104.4FM (www.resonancefm.com), repeated on Tuesday 7th June, 1pm, with podcasts to follow.
The film director who brought us the exquisite dream-like imagery and surreal investigations into the subconscious in such masterpieces as the Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Belle de Jour, Un Chien Andalou and The Exterminating Angel, is under the spotlight tonight. Luis Bunuel is an undoubted genius of cinema, and we will explore his oeuvre and his life, hoping to decrypt the bizarre symbolism and random connections of his other-wordly maps of the id.
Hosted by James DC, with Bunuel expert Simon Elmer and author Lee Hill.
