Bunuel's Mexico home opens its doors

The Mexican home of Spanish film director Luis Bunuel opens to the public with a special exhibition about his iconic movie ‘Viridiana’.

The film was criticised by the Vatican for its religious and sexual themes and banned in Spain.

Bunuel arrived in Mexico in 1946, where he welcomed many friends, including writers in exile.

‘Viridiana’ stars Mexican actress Silvia Pinal and despite criticism the film won the Palm d’Or in the 1961 Cannes Film Festival.

Other Bunuel films such as great surrealist classic ‘Un chien Andalou’, which was written by Bunuel and Salvador Dali, will also be exhibited at the house, though dates have not yet been set.
