Javier Espada explores how Luis Buñuel, one of the greatest precursors of surrealist cinema through works like An Andalusian Dog and The Golden Age, began to move away from this movement but never completely abandoned it, maintaining a strong oneiric element in his films. Taking us deep into his past and evolution as a creator, this documentary provides an unprecedented window into the world and work of an irreplaceable genius whose influence has reached the rest of the arts.

​​Luis Buñuel, precursor of surrealist cinema, maintained references to surrealist postulates in his films from Mexico, Spain and France. On many occasions, Buñuel is inspired by classical painters, such as Goya, Tiziano, Leonardo da Vinci or Millet, on others, his cinema acquires a dimension of an authentic surrealist work of art.
