The turbulent years of the 1930s were of profound importance in the life of Spanish film director Luis BuApuel (1900a€“1983). He joined the Surrealist movement in 1929 but by 1932 had renounced it and embraced Communism. During the Spanish Civil War (1936a€“39), he played an integral role in disseminating film propaganda in Paris for the Spanish Republican cause. Luis BuApuel: The Red Years, 1929a€“1939 investigates BuApuela€™s commitment to making the politicized documentary Land without Bread (1933) and his key role as an executive producer at FilmA³fono in Madrid, where he was responsible in 1935a€“36 for making four commercial features that prefigure his work in Mexico after 1946. As for the republics of France and Spain between which BuApuel shuttled during the 1930s, these became equally embattled as left and right totalitarianisms fought to wrest political power away from a debilitated capitalism. Where it exists, the literature on this crucial decade of the film directora€™s life is scant and relies on BuApuela€™s own self-interested accounts of that complex period. RomAin Gubern and Paul Hammond have undertaken extensive archival research in Europe and the United States and evaluated BuApuela€™s accounts and those of historians and film writers to achieve a portrait of BuApuela€™s a€œRed Yearsa€ that abounds in new information.Un cinAcaste des annAces 50:Jean-Paul Le Chanois Paris: Dreamland A‰diteur, 2000. ...
