Review quote

Gubern and Hammond s book is of course about Bunuel . . . but it is also about other aspects of those years: social fears and social change, the Surrealist movement, the paradigm shift that the advent of talkies would bring to cinema, Republican propaganda during the Spanish Civil War, the diverging paths that Spain s early film production companies (Filmofono and Cifesa) would take, and, ultimately, about the choices that artists like Bunuel faced in the 1930s.
