Paris, 1930. The infamous surrealist filmmaker Luis Bunuel is left penniless after the scandalous release of L'Age d'Or leads to a falling out with collaborator Salvador Dali. On a whim, Bunuel's good friend, sculptor Ramon Acin, buys a lottery ticket and promises to devote his winnings to fund Bunuel's next film. Incredibly, Ramon wins the jackpot, sending the two friends to the remote mountains of their native Spain to film the documentary Las Hurdes: Land Without Bread. Driven by mad artistic impulse and haunted by childhood memories, Bunuel must confront the specter of mortality looming over the lives of his subjects --and his own. In a stranger-than-fiction tale befitting the master filmmaker, Bunuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles tells the true story behind a fascinating episode in cinematic history, utilizing sensitive performances as well as excerpts from Bunuel's filmography to present a deeply affecting and humanistic portrait of an artist hunting for his purpose.
