Synopsis:
TR:

Paris, 1930. Salvador Dalí ve Luis Buñuel Sürrealist hareketin ana figürleri haline gelmiştir. Buñuel, Altın Çağ filminin ardından gelen karalamalarla beklenmedik bir şekilde parasız kalır. Bu zor durumda, İspanya’nın en yoksul bölgelerinden biri olan Las Hurdes hakkındaki bir belgesel olan bir sonraki projesinin üstesinden gelemez. Bunun üzerine Buñuel’in yakın dostu heykeltıraş Ramón Acín, bir piyango bileti alarak eğer kazanırsa Buñuel’in filminin masraflarını karşılayacağına söz verir. İnanılmaz bir şekilde, şans onların tarafındadır.

Paris, 1930. Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel are already the main figures of the Surrealist movement. Unexpectedly, Buñuel is left moneyless after the scandal surrounding his film The Golden Age. In this difficult situation, he cannot even tackle his next project, a documentary about one of the poorest Spanish regions, Las Hurdes. However, his good friend, sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket with the promise that, if he wins, he will pay for the film. Incredibly, luck is on their side.

Salvador Simó is a film director and scriptwriter. He started studying Animation at the American Animation Institute of Los Angeles in 1991 while also working at the Bill Melendez Prod Studio on a special Charlie Brown feature. When he returned to Europe he worked in the field of traditional animation for several companies, including Disney in Paris, where he lived for two years. Subsequently, he returned to Barcelona where he continued working for Disney and set up a studio that worked exclusively for that same company (Disney), during three years, while studying Film Directing at the CECC, and making a couple of short films in animation, one of them in the Animation Workshop in Denmark where he worked as teacher for a year and a half. Thereafter, Salvador moved to London to work in MPC’s department of pre-visualisation & layout, in projects like NARNIA, PRINCE CASPIAN, TTHE WEREWOLF, PRINCE OF PERSIA, and the James Bond movie SKYFALL, where his knowledge on cinematography & animation opened many doors for him. In 2008 he began directing a cg animation series in Asia, eventually shooting over 500 minutes of film. Then, in 2014, MPC again offered him a job. This time as head of film sequences in the animation feature movie THE JUNGLE BOOK, produced by Disney, as well as in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES. In 2016 he moved back to Spain to direct the Buñuel feature film project: BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES which premiered in October 2018 at the Animation Film Festival of Los Angeles, where he was awarded the Jury Prize.
